Amiable Quotations

How easy to be amiable in the midst of happiness and success.
William Ellery Channing

Women are often expected to be more amiable or more pleasing or more submissive than men generally.
Maria Doyle Kennedy

The sweet quality is set opposite to the bitter, and is a gracious, amiable, blessed and pleasant quality, a refreshing of the life, an allaying of the fierceness.
