Quote of the Day

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

Saint Francis de Sales, French saint & bishop of Geneva (1567 - 1622)

Tonight I quoted the first part of the above, as spoken by Jennifer Jones to William Holden in Love is a Many Splendoured Thing (1955) and my friend gently informed me of the entire quote, which I certainly prefer.

Wonderful quote BPG. I think it's true too, hope it's true, though it's completely the opposite of what Western society tells us. Thanks, it cheered me up as well, like Cha Cha.
