Gentlenmess is characterized by spiritual patience. God is ever gentle with His erring children and, unoffended, remains quiet when they revile or ignore Him. All men who are in divine attunement are kind and forbearing. A gentle person attracts friends on earth and also, more importantly attracts the Lord, the Friend of All Friends. A spiritually patient man does not feel ill will toward anyone, even the most evil.

—Paramahansa Yogananda, the twenty-six ennobling qualities of the devotee, chapter 16, God Talks with Arjuna: The Bhagavad Gita.
