  1. loving

    Amiable combines the senses of lovable or lovely and loving; the amiable character has ready affection and kindliness for others, with the qualities that are adapted to win their love; amiable is a higher and stronger word than good-natured or agreeable. Lovely is often applied to externals; as, a lovely face. Amiable denotes a disposition desirous to cheer, please, and make happy. A selfish man of the world may have the art to be agreeable; a handsome, brilliant, and witty person may be charming or even attractive, while by no means amiable. The engaging, winning, and winsome add to amiability something of beauty, accomplishments, and grace. The benignant are calmly kind, as from a height and a distance. Kind, good-natured people may be coarse and rude, and so fail to be agreeable or pleasing; the really amiable are likely to avoid such faults by their earnest desire to please. The good-natured have an easy disposition to get along comfortably with every one in all circumstances. A sweet disposition is very sure to be amiable, the loving heart bringing out all that is lovable and lovely in character.

How to use loving in a sentence?

  1. Bruce Paltrow:

    I'm so focused on optimization, always, but I think what sometimes gets lost in that picture is that it's really important to eat french fries and baguettes, life is about balance and enjoyment and loving your food and appreciating the moment.

  2. Murray N. Rothbard:

    It is curious that people tend to regard government as a quasi-divine, selfless, Santa Claus organization. Government was constructed neither for ability nor for the exercise of loving care; government was built for the use of force and for necessarily demagogic appeals for votes. If individuals do not know their own interests in many cases, they are free to turn to private experts for guidance. It is absurd to say that they will be served better by a coercive, demagogic apparatus.

  3. Lead Pastor James Ludlow:

    We love drive-in movies, frozen yogurt, dates to IKEA and trips to the beach. we are stunned ! Shocked ! Wounded, broken and dismayed. But we know one thing for sure... they are in glory in the loving arms of our King Jesus !

  4. Debasish Mridha, M.D.:

    A loving heart is the source of all happiness, all joy and all bliss.

  5. Dan Do/Kim Nguyen -RRB-:

    She's a very good big sister, really loving, really sweet.
