I know the two attributes aren’t often viewed as fitting together; for in literature they are the opposite polar of each other.
Most people like a meek and mild person or character who are not to be able to defend themselves. But in reality that is not true. Most humble people chooses to be meek and mild but it doesn’t mean they can’t defend themselves. These are the people when they does get angry which isn’t frequent. It’s a nuclear fallout. So, it isn’t the person with all the mouth and bravo who can actual kick butt. Oftentimes it’s the meek one whom everyone takes their meekness as a weakness are who can actually annihilate their enemy.
So most often the most fierce warriors are meek and mild. they just don’t assert it all the time because they have nothing to prove until needed.
