Gentleness is considered to play a very important role strength to love pdf life. The quality of gentleness is colloquially understood to be that of kindness, consideration and amiability.
Gentleness is a strong hand with a soft touch. It is a tender, compassionate approach toward others’ weaknesses and limitations. A gentle person still speaks truth, sometimes even painful truth, but in doing so guards his tone so the truth can be well received. When my daughter was young, she used to love to squeeze my hand as hard as she could, trying to make it hurt. She could squeeze with all her might, but it never hurt.
She didn’t need to be gentle because she lacked the power to cause me any pain. Then, just for fun, I’d give her hand a tight little squeeze until she yelped. It’s the strong hand, not the weak one, that must learn to be gentle. The broadening of gentle behavior from a literal sense of the gentry to the metaphorical “like a gentleman” applicable to any person was a later development.
