GOOD NATURE
[ Also see Amiability Benevolence Complacency Equanimity Ill-nature Kindness Patience Pleasing Smiles Temper ]

Good-nature is more agreeable in conversation than wit, and gives a certain air to the countenance which is more amiable than beauty. It shows virtue in the fairest light; takes off in some measure from the deformity of vice; and makes even folly and impertinence supportable.
      - Joseph Addison

Good nature is worth more than knowledge, more than money, more than honor, to the persons who posses it.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Good-nature is one of the richest fruits of true Christianity.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Nothing can constitute good-breeding that has not good-nature for its foundation.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

Good sense and good-nature are never separated, though the ignorant world has thought otherwise. Good-nature, by which I mean beneficence and candor, is the product of right reason.
      - John Dryden

Good-nature is that benevolent and amiable temper of mind which disposes us to feel the misfortunes and enjoy the happiness of others, and, consequently, pushes us on to promote the latter and prevent the former; and that without any abstract contemplation on the beauty of virtue, and without the allurements or terrors of religion.
      - Henry Fielding

There are persons of that general philanthropy and easy tempers, which the world in contempt generally calls good-natured, who seem to be sent into the world with the same design with which men put little fish into a pike pond, in order only to be devoured by that voracious water-hero.
      - Henry Fielding

Good-nature is the very air of a good mind, the sign of a large and generous soul, and the peculiar soil in which virtue prospers.
      - Godfrey Goodman

Good-nature is the beauty of the mind, and like personal beauty, wins almost without anything else, sometimes, indeed, in spite of positive deficiencies.
      - James Hanway

An inexhaustible good nature is one of the most precious gifts of heaven, spreading itself like oil over the troubled sea of thought, and keeping the mind smooth and equable in the roughest weather.
      - Washington Irving

That inexhaustible good-nature which is the most precious gift of Heaven, spreading itself like oil over the troubled sea of thought, and keeping the mind smooth and equable in the roughest weather.
      - Washington Irving

'Tis good nature only wins the heart
  It moulds the body to an easy grace
    And brightens every feature of the face;
      It smoothes th' unpolish'd tongue with eloquence
        And adds persuasion to the finest sense.
      - Benjamin Stillingfleet
