“There are moments when the body is as numinous as words, days that are the good flesh continuing. Such tenderness, those afternoons and evenings, saying blackberry, blackberry, blackberry.”
“Tenderness and kindness are not signs of weakness and despair but manifestations of strength and resolution”
“When he spoke, what tender words he used! So softly, that like flakes of feathered snow, They melted as they fell.”
“Oh, tenderly the haughty day Fills his blue urn with fire”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Speak but one word to me over the corn, / Over the tender, bowed locks of the corn.”
“And enough for me that when my hand touched your shoulder, you leaned on me; and when you felt me slip away, you called my name.”
Orson Scott Card
“When death, the great reconciler, has come, it is never our tenderness that we repent of, but our severity.”
