Gentleness is a Strength
I learned that it is the weak who are cruel, and that gentleness is to be expected only from the strong. – Leo Rosten, American author
Gentleness is sometimes mistakenly interpreted as weakness, as an inability to stand up for ourselves. Being gentle, even under duress, is spiritual and emotional maturity, and gives one a better opportunity to respond to a challenging situation with composure and inner strength.
