He allowed himself to be swayed by his conviction that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.

KINDNESS: NATURE OR NURTURE?
I tend to think that ‘kindness’ is an inborn personality trait, a part, if you wish, of our DNA rather than a character trait.
I think it is a function of tender feelings towards the less fortunate, which we see even in the young child, as early as 2 or 3 years of age, playing with friends when they think they are not being observed. Some are demonstrably, naturally kindly; and others, in the same circle, will clearly demonstrate an atavistic behaviour toward their friends: decidedly un-kind.
It can’t be a function of Will alone, since it comes so effortlessly, without any premeditated thought of outcome. The environment in which one is raised in may just reinforce what was already within, for a very unkind parent may raise the kindest of children that no matter how severe the parent(s) the child will ultimately grow into a sensitive, and very kind adult. While kind and generous parent(s), who dote on a child, can raise a firebrand hellion into adulthood with no tender mercies at all.
Can you teach an adult to be merciful? Is generosity a function of volition, opportunity, circumstance, and choice alone, or would an adult be that way no matter the circumstance of their life? People want to be kind. That does not make them kind.
Not all who are malevolent are without caring; acts of generosity, paradoxically, coming out the most extraordinary evil. There are people throughout history who adored their doting parents and had very tender feelings toward them; they demonstrably loved their pets. One might assume a kind disposition. John Paul Getty could not have been more unkind toward his children. Getty, a Philanthropist, left the bulk of his Estate not to his children, but to Society. He left a house divided against itself in his children.
What is the nature of kindness? Wherein is it born? Is it nature or circumstance? Do we have a gene for it? The “milk of human kindness” does not always flow so deep.
