“If people were always kind…”

“If people were always kind and obedient to those who are cruel and unjust, the wicked people would have it all their own way: they would never feel afraid, and so they would never alter, but would grow worse and worse. When we are struck at without reason, we should strike back again very hard; I am sure we should — so hard as to teach the person who struck us never to do it again.”
— Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontรซ

    Interesting concept. I think we actually need some of both. Because sometimes people are cruel and wicked because they have never known love and kindness.

    True. I put the stress on “always”. Being kind is good, but that doesn’t always help.
    And what about always being obedient?
