Kindness misunderstood

“I have already said that the princess was, at this time of her life, such a low-minded creature, that severity had greater influence over her than kindness. She understood terror better far than tenderness.”—Excerpt From: MacDonald, George. “A Double Story.”

That is a sad commentary on a person. Lord, don't ever allow me to degenerate to that level!

By the way, this book is an excellent parenting manual. If you only ever read one book on parenting, this little children's story should be it. Best part is that it is available online here (in multiple formats, too).
