Calm and peaceful…when surrounded by a heated atmosphere

In our rough and rugged individualism, we think of gentleness as weakness,
being soft and virtually spineless. Not so! Gentleness includes such enviable
qualities as having strength under control, being calm and peaceful when
surrounded by a heated atmosphere, emitting a soothing effect on those
who may be angry or otherwise beside themselves, and possessing tact
and gracious courtesy that causes others to retain their self-esteem and
dignity. Instead of losing, the gentle gain. Instead of being ripped off
and taken advantage of, they come out ahead! ~Charles Swindoll
