Meekness is a possible attribute of human nature and behavior. It has been defined several ways:*Godfearing, righteous, humble, teachable, and patient under suffering; willing to follow gospel teachings; an attribute of a true disciple.*The Christian Apostle Paul gave an example of meek behavior when writing to Timothy: "The servant of the Lord must be gentle, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose." (2 Tim. 2:24–25)*A meek behavior is presented as being opposite to "the natural man" (i.e. one who acts strictly according to desires of the body): "Put off the natural man and become meek." (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 3:19)*Sir Thomas Browne explained: "Meekness takes injuries like pills, not chewing, but swallowing them down." This indicates that meekness allows a person to overlook or forgive perceived insults or offenses.*"A disposition to be patient and long-suffering."*Power under control - roughly equivalent in common usage to humility. - Source: Wikipedia
