It is not our differences that divide us. It is our inability to recognize, accept, and celebrate those differences.
I am completely fascinated by the differences and comparisons between real life and fairy tales because we're raised as little girls to think that we're a princess and that Prince Charming is going to sweep us off our feet.
Children tease each other because you're short or you're tall or you're a redhead or because you're ugly or because you're smart or because you're dumb or all kinds of differences and as parents we have to deal with that and strengthen our children to be comfortable with themselves and also to show empathy and acceptance towards others.

M. Scott Peck
What we have to do... is to find a way to celebrate our diversity and debate our differences without fracturing our communities.
Autism is a neurological disorder. It's not caused by bad parenting. It's caused by, you know, abnormal development in the brain. The emotional circuits in the brain are abnormal.

I do believe that the original sources of all religions should be taught, because with that we will find our similarities, not just our differences.

Strength lies in differences, not in similarities.
I can and do aspire to be greater than the sum total of my experiences, but I accept my limitations.

All differences in this world are of degree, and not of kind, because oneness is the secret of everything.
Sports are such a great teacher. I think of everything they've taught me: camaraderie, humility, how to resolve differences.
