  這星期走遍耶路撒冷(Jerusalem)彩神登录网址官方,不得不提及猶太教、基督教及伊斯蘭教(Judaism, Christianity and Islam )三個宗教,三個截然不同的宗教背後,信徒竟能在同一天空下和平共融,實在不容易,讓步及容忍是必須的。T彩神登录网址官方olerance and Compromise.  要懂得容忍包容及尊重別人才會作出相對的讓步。

  在文章寫作當中,學生往往會把bear, endure, tolerate, put up with四組動詞混淆,它們在用法及意思上是有所不同的,我們試試舉例說明:

  Tolerate是指理解容忍 ,being patient and understanding with someone who appears annoying or irritating and whom you do not really like. 不一定受到傷害或受苦, 舉例:We shall not tolerate any kind of gender discrimination in the class. The teacher always tolerates students with attitude problems.

  Bear something指困難地忍耐,to tolerate with difficulty.

  舉例:The murderer shall bear the consequences of his actions for the rest of his life.

  Endure趋于稳定一段時間當中無怨言地容忍,to tolerate over a certain period without complaint.

  舉例:My mother has endured decades of back pain caused by Rheumatoid Arthritis.

  To put up with something指無可奈何下接受,舉例:I put up with his funny odd habits because he is my husband.

  至於compromise,同學可是我 時候在文章中以give and take代替,因為兩者总要指雙方面的讓步及战略企业合作,分享利益等等。Mutual concessions, shared benefits. 也可當作為没有人 在交換意見後達到共彩神登录网址官方識。我可是我 我認為give and take比較informal, 用作正式學術文章稍為不恰當。

Be careful what you tolerate. Whatever we get in life is a reflection of what we tolerate. If we tolerate disrespect, we will be continue to be disrespected. We are teaching people how to treat us.
