The first thing we are going to do is determine the etymological origin of the gentle word that now concerns us. In this case we can state that it derives from Latin and that it is the result of the sum of the following clearly defined parts:
-The prefix "ad-", which is equivalent to "towards".
-The verb "placere", which can be translated as "pleasing."
-The suffix "-ible", which is used to indicate "who can".
Peaceful is a adjective that can be used to qualify the docile person, affable, peaceful and pleasant treatment . For example: "In the middle of the chaos, a gentle doctor reassured and treated dozens of injured", “I consider myself a gentle man; but if someone hurts my children, I am able to react in the worst way ”, “The neighbors defined the suspect as a gentle and friendly woman”.
A gentle individual is one who does not usually discuss with other subjects and who usually shows quiet and of good humor . It can be said that someone gentle does not get angry often or manifest violently. Gentleness, therefore, is a positive quality.
Importantly, the notion of gentle can also be applied to what is calm and charming : “It's a very peaceful and sunny day, which invites you to spend long hours at the beach”, "The peaceful weather will last until next Tuesday and then it will begin to deteriorate, as reported by meteorologists", “This is a peaceful town, with little traffic and little insecurity”.
The idea of peaceful many times it appears linked to the meteorology . When he weather It is good, there is no wind and there is no precipitation, it can be described as peaceful. These are ideal days to enjoy the outdoors. Instead, storms and gusts of wind make a day not peaceful.
