Crafting Gentleness

Nothing is so strong as gentleness

Some lines from the life of Francis de Sales (1567-1622) , a man who seems to have lived with gentleness and evangelical righteousness, always an interesting mix, (although not a coupling I would be fond of myself):

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

“Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.”
