Quote of the Week

Nothing is so strong as gentleness, nothing so gentle as real strength.
- St. Francis de Sales

Strength and gentleness are indeed important and desirable traits that make us more compassionate people.


  1. Linda -- This is an excellent quote -- one I want to keep with me today.

    It is easy to forget the strength in gentleness. Yet, all all emotions, it is a superhero because it has the ability to alter perspective.

    It's hard to stay angry in the face of gentleness.

    BTW You were right about the dragonfly!!! Good for you:~)

  2. I heard this one last week at the end of "Criminal Minds". I scribbled it down and looked it up to see who they attributed it to. I think several different people are credited with and there are more than one version of it.

    My dragonfly, Blaze, would whisk me away to the beach. Blaze being for his blazing fast speed. :)

  3. That is an awesome quote and so true. So often people equate strength with force.

  4. Hi Talon,

    It's inner strength that matters most.

    Thanks for visiting.

  5. Thanks Jen. Some weeks they just fall into place, and other times I have to search for the one that "speaks to me" at that moment.
