tenderness

The quality of strength lined with tenderness is an unbeatable combination, as are intelligence and necessity when unblunted by formal education.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do not keep the alabaster boxes of your love and tenderness sealed up until your friends are dead. Fill their lives with sweetness, speak cheering words while their ears can hear, and while their hearts can be thrilled and made happier by them. GeorgeMore [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

Many of the phenomena of Winter are suggestive of an inexpressible tenderness and fragile delicacy. We are accustomed to hear this king described as a rude and boisterous tyrant; but with the gentleness of a lover he adorns the tresses of Summer.More [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Maren Hontvedt: I have discovered in my life that it is not always the nature of god nor why he may bring in one night pleasure & death & rage & tenderness all intermingled so that one can barely distinguish one from the other... and it is all that one can do to hang onto sanity.More [12/20/2005 12:12:00]
Chris Nielsen: There's a man Ian never got to know, the man he was growing up to be. He's a good-looking clear-eyed fella... about 25. I can see him. He's the type of guy men want to be around, because he has integrity, you know ? He has character. You can't fake that. And he's a guy women want to be around, too. Because there's tenderness in him... respect... and loyalty, and courage. And women respond to that. Makes him a terrific husband, this guy. I see him as a father. That's where he really shines. See, when he looks in his kid's eyes and that kid knows that his dad really, really sees him... he sees who he is. Then that child knows that he is an amazing person. He's quite a guy... that I'll never get to meet. I wish I had.More [01/01/2006 12:01:00]

Judge Dennis:
[the crowd has re-gathered at the train station to see Woodrwow] Naturally the nomination went back to Doc Bissell. But he got up and said...



Mr. Schultz:
"Ladies and gents...”



Doc Bissell:
Don't mis-quote me.



Judge Dennis:
What?



Doc Bissell:
I said, "ladies and gentlemen."



Committee Chairman:
Of course you did.



Doc Bissell:
I said, "Ladies and gentlemen, in all the years that I have been unsuccessfully mixed into politics, this is the first and only time that I have ever seen a candidate for office - given an opportunity to prove publicly, permanently and beyond peradventure of doubt that he was honest, courageous and veracious...”



Judge Dennis:
That means truthful. He likes those big words.



Doc Bissell:
I said, further, "that if to act out a little lie to save one's mother humiliation was a fault - in other words, if tenderness toward and consideration of one's mother was a fault - it was a fault any man might be proud of."

Professor Weirdo:
Six drops of Essence of Terror, Five drops of Sinister Sauce;



Count Kook:
When the stirring's done, can I lick the spoon?



Professor Weirdo:
Of course! A-ha! Of course! Now for a pinch of tenderness But I must use only a touch, For without a touch of tenderness He might destroy me!


[Kook accidentally knocks Weirdo's arm]



Professor Weirdo:
OOPS! Too much!

Evgeny Onegin:
[writing to Tatyana] I can forsee the bitter scorn blazing at me from your proud eyes when you have read my secret sorrow. When we first met, through chance, I saw tenderness like a shooting star but did not dare to put my faith in it. Then Lensky fell, which parted us til further. Then I tore my heart away from everything I loved, rootless, estranged from all, I thought that liberty and peace would serve instead of happiness. My God, how wrong I was. How I have been punished. No, day by day to be with you, follow you everywhere, alive to every smile, each movement of your eyes, to dwell upon you soul's perfection, listen to your voice and grow faint with yearning. That is bliss and I'm cut off from it. My time is short, each day and hour is precious yet I just drag myself around in boredom. Everyday a desert unless when I wake up I know the day will bring a glimpse of you. If you but knew the flames that burn in me, which I attempt to beat down with my reason, but let it be. I cannot struggle against my feelings anymore, I am entirely in your will.

Humbert:
I looked and looked at her, and I knew, as clearly as I know that I will die, that I loved her more than anything I had ever seen or imagined on earth. She was only the dead-leaf echo of the nymphet from long ago - but I loved her, this Lolita, pale and polluted and big with another man's child. She could fade and wither - I didn't care. I would still go mad with tenderness at the mere sight of her face.

Chris Nielsen:
[delivering a eulogy for Ian] There's a man Ian never got to know: the man he was growing up to be. He's a good looking clear-eyed young fellow, about 25. I can see him. He's the type of guy that men want to be around, because he has integrity, you know? He has character. You can't fake that. And he's a guy women want to be around too, because there's a tenderness in him. Respect, and loyalty, and courage, and women respond to that. Makes him a terrific husband, this guy. I see him as a father. That's where he really shines. I see him when he looks into his kid's eyes. That kid knows that his dad really, really sees him. He sees who he is. And then that child knows that he's an amazing person. He's quite a guy, that he'll never get to meet.

Captain Monica Stark:
Frankly, Dr. Edwards, in the past, I've had little use for you headshrinkers, inkblot tests, "I hate my mother" and all that crap. But with this case, I find myself at a loss. I understand you specialize in the treatment of homicidal maniacs.



Dr. Edwards:
Yes, well, I've never been involved in a criminal investigation.



Captain Monica Stark:
Hmm. Don't worry. You can leave the cops and robbers stuff to me. What I need from you is this: what kind of sicko am I looking for?



Dr. Edwards:
The perpetrator preys upon vulnerable unfortunates the killers deems somehow flawed.



Captain Monica Stark:
Give me a profile.



Dr. Edwards:
Let's say the assailant is highly sophisticated, yet childlike. Vulnerable but canny.


[a photo of Chicklet flies in Monica's head]



Dr. Edwards:
Capable of both tenderness and extreme brutality.


[then, a photo of Kanaka]



Dr. Edwards:
The murderer is highly intelligent, yet strangely out of touch with reality.


[then a photo of Mrs. Forrest]



Dr. Edwards:
Sexual, yet surprisingly innocent.


[then, a photo of Bettina Barnes]



Dr. Edwards:
This individual has an insatiable craving for normalcy, which will make your investigation all the more difficult.



Captain Monica Stark:
How so?



Dr. Edwards:
Because the killer will do everything in his power to pass as normal.


[finally, a question mark]



Dr. Edwards:
He or she could be anyone.

Jupiter and the Monkey
Jupiter issued a proclamation to all the beasts of the forest and promised a royal reward to the one whose offspring should be deemed the handsomest. The Monkey came with the rest and presented, with all a mother's tenderness, a flat-nosed, hairless, ill-featured young Monkey as a candidate for the promised reward.
