La tolerance

"Je deteste ce que vous ecrivez, mais je donnerais ma vie pour que vous puissiez continuer a ecrire." --Voltaire

("I detest what you write, but I would give my life so that you can continue to write.")

In other words, be tolerant and welcoming of other people's opinions. Don't censor them even if you hate what they say.

That quote was in my French book, and I thought it was rather deep. Maybe it's something people should think about in light of all the stupidity Livejournal's been having lately.
