How would you write the following:
“Choose gentleness/kindness” Or even just “choose”, or “make a choice”, said as a directive? Or to say “You have a choice” “One has a choice”?
My thought behind this is to remember that there is always a choice to be made; that we are active agents in this life. I’d prefer something brief and maybe more open-ended. I originally thought to use “optio”. Would that be appropriate?
I’m planning to engrave this on a necklace as a sort of life mantra/ reminder. I might engrave gentleness on the back, if you have a translation suggestion for that as well.
