„I accept chaos. I am not sure whether it accepts me. I know there are some people terrified of the bomb, but there are others terrified to be seen carrying a Modern Screen magazine. Experience teaches that silence terrifies the most.“

—  Bob Dylan American singer-songwriter, musician, author, and artist 1941

As quoted in "Cosmo Listens to Records" http://www.mediafire.com/view/za1l4i1dftotwg9/.png by Nat Hentoff, in Cosmopolitan (November 1965)

„God gave me a physical defect, and I've accepted that since I'm a kid.“

—  Jean Chrétien 20th Prime Minister of Canada 1934

1993, at a campaign stop, in response to the infamous attack ad that appeared to mock him and suggest he was unfit for the job of Prime Minister due to his Bell's Palsy condition. Source video on YouTube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PikszBkfTHM
Kontext: But last night, the Conservative Party reached a new low; they tried to make fun of the way I look. God gave me a physical defect, and I've accepted that since I'm a kid. It's true, that I speak on one side of my mouth. I'm not a Tory, I don't speak on both sides of my mouth.

„I think has been invaluable to me in terms of a moral compass – of some idea of what’s acceptable and what is not acceptable.“

—  Alex Salmond Scottish National Party politician and former First Minister of Scotland 1954

Kontext: I do have a strong faith and always have had, I’m not a regular churchgoer now but I’m in church a lot – to do readings, to attend events and so on. I had a strong church upbringing which I think has been invaluable to me in terms of a moral compass – of some idea of what’s acceptable and what is not acceptable. I have a Presbyterian nature in that I like its ideas of individual responsibility and democracy. I’m naturally suspicious of people who wear religion heavily on their sleeves – that’s just not me and my style.

„I will not accept boundaries; appearances cannot contain me“

—  Nikos Kazantzakis, kniha The Saviors of God

The Saviors of God (1923)
Kontext: I will not accept boundaries; appearances cannot contain me; I choke! To bleed in this agony, and to live it profoundly, is the second duty.
The mind is patient and adjusts itself, it likes to play; but the heart grows savage and will not condescend to play; it stifles and rushes to tear apart the nets of necessity.

„But she never just accepted me for the way I was.“

—  Julie Anne Peters American writer 1952

„Acceptance. Acceptance of the impermanence of being.“

—  William Gibson American-Canadian speculative fiction novelist and founder of the cyberpunk subgenre 1948

When asked what will save humanity.
No Maps for These Territories (2000)
Kontext: Acceptance. Acceptance of the impermanence of being. And acceptance of the imperfect nature of being, or possibly the perfect nature of being, depending on how one looks at it. Acceptance that this is not a rehearsal. That this is it.
