This quote belongs to John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917 – 1963), commonly referred to by his initials JFK.

“Have you ever met anyone similar to you in all ways? Probably not, and that is a good thing! Imagine a community where everyone is the same, where each one thinks and acts alike. How boring and unproductive that would be. Different cultures with different values make life more interesting. Individual human beings are unique and special by nature. We all need a world in which differences are embraced and appreciated. We can all learn from one another to make the world a better place for all of us.”  ~QUOTESGRAM

“I think… if it is true that
there are as many minds as there
are heads, then there are as many
kinds of love as there are hearts.”
― Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

Diversity is Awesome!

“For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. Having gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith; if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching; the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness.”
~
Romans 12:4-8

 

“What we all have in common are very strong and unique children.  They have learned to be more tolerant and to understand what it is to be different.  We live in a world where there are many diverse things about people and we should all try to be more accepting of these differences.”  

 

One of many favorites by Dr. Seuss

 

“Live in harmony with one another. Do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly. Never be wise in your own sight.” ~Romans 12:16

“What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up.”  ~1 Corinthians 14:26

“It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength.”  ― Maya Angelou

“It is never too late to give up your prejudices”
― Henry David Thoreau
