Gentleness Quotes

These are some of the best 'Gentleness' quotations and sayings.

Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.

True gentleness is founded on a sense of what we owe to him who made us, and to the common nature which we all share. - It arises from reflection on our own failings and wants, and from just views of the condition and duty of men. - It is native feeling heightened and improved by principle.

True gentleness is love in society, holding intercourse with those around it. - It is considerateness; it is tenderness of feeling; it is promptitude of sympathy; it is love in all its depths, and in all its delicacy. - It is everything included in that matchless grace, "the gentleness of Christ."

We are indebted to Christianity for gentleness, especially toward women.

What thou wilt thou shalt rather enforce with thy smile than hew to it with thy sword.
