Gentleness



"So many areas of our lives can benefit
from the application of gentleness.
The beauty of gentleness lies in its multifaceted nature.
It is part love,
part compassion,
part patience,
part understanding,
and part respect for others."



~ Excepted from the Daily Om

Words to live by. A "gentleness" epidemic would be nice. Thanks and rest in peace Officer Crittenden.

All of us could use a little gentleness these days. With the escalating problems in our economy and the personal conflicts we have to deal with on a daily basis, it is understandable how we can easily lose patience and our tempers as well. Thanks for posting this. I ought to memorize this and recite it a hundred times a day.
