: Can you please tell me where/how this phrase came about? Also, what does it mean, exactly? Thank you, Saxon.
From the archives:
: From Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew
: "This is the way to kill a wife with kindess"
Somewhere in the Bible it states that you should "heap coals of kindness" on the head of your enemy.
