James E. Faust
Only the weak are cruel. Gentleness can only be expected from the strong.
You have a right to say no. Most of us have very weak and flaccid 'no' muscles. We feel guilty for saying no. We get ostracized and challenged for saying no, so we forget it's our choice. Your 'no' muscle has to be built up to get to a place where you can say, 'I don't care if that's what you want. I don't want that. No.'
Men err from selfishness; women because they are weak.
Madame de Stael
