Openness to all forms of being, and to all manner of perception (Henry David Thoreau)

Tolerance accepts plurality:

"Why should we be in such desperate haste to succeed, and in such desperate enterprises. If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away." – Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
