Tending to soothe
Freeing from fear or anxiety
soothing (plural soothings)
- The act by which somebody is soothed.
- 1823, Charles Caleb Colton, (Please provide the book title or journal name):
- There are moments when the brightest minds prefer the soothings of sympathy to all the brilliance of wit, as he that is in need of repose, selects a bed of feathers, rather than of flints.
