English Synonyms and Antonyms
Friendly, as said of persons, signifies having the disposition of a friend; as said of acts, it signifies befitting or worthy of a friend. The adjective friendly does not reach the full significance of the nouns "friend" and "friendship;" one may be friendly to those who are not his friends, and to be in friendly relations often signifies little more than not to be hostile. In its application to persons, accessible is used of public and eminent persons, who might, if disposed, hold themselves at a distance from others. Companionable and sociable refer to manner and behavior, cordial and genial express genuine kindliness of heart. We speak of a cordial greeting, a favorable reception, a neighborly call, a sociable visitor, an amicable settlement, a kind interest, a friendly regard, a hearty welcome. The Saxon friendly is stronger than the Latin amicable; the amicable may be merely formal; the friendly is from the heart. Fond is commonly applied to an affection that becomes, or at least appears, excessive. Affectionate, devoted, and tender are almost always used in a high and good sense; as, an affectionate son; a devoted friend; "the tender mercy of our God," Luke i, 78. Compare FRIENDSHIP.

How to use kindly in a sentence?

It may seem to your conceited to suppose that you can do anything important toward improving the lot of mankind. But this is a fallacy. You must believe that you can help bring about a better world. A good society is produced only by good individuals, just as truly as a majority in a presidential election is produced by the votes of single electors. Everybody can do something toward creating in his own environment kindly feelings rather than anger, reasonableness rather than hysteria, happiness rather than misery.
The entire law or scripture is summed up in a single command. Guess what I'm talking about? It is nothing else but LOVE scripture reference (Galatians 5:14). So says the scripture and I'm saying the same thing. You've got to love all and sundry, even if you don't like them. Therefore, do you hate at the expense of love? If yes then, please do away with hatred and kindly replenish yourself with love. For, the call to love all is a divine command which you should strictly adhere to. Yes of course, you should love and never hate. Besides that, God himself first loved us in order for us to love one another in return. Therefore, love all and hate none. -Emeasoba George
