- One of St. Paul’s "fruit of the spirit".
- “A meek man is one that is not easily provoked, yet easily grieved; not peevish or testy, but soft, gentle and inoffensive… Patience is an effect of a meek spirit, and flows from it: it is a bearing and suffering disposition; not choleric or soon moved to wrath, or vindictive; but ready to hear and endure too, rather than be swift and hasty in judgment or action.” ―William Penn
