    Grace

    Hi -

    Can someone help?
    I'm looking for the best word for 'grace' - as in, 'a sense of propriety and consideration for others' - not graceful movement, or the grace of god - just the human quality type sense.

    Thanks!

    For me seems like it may be такт, чувство такта, чуткость, понимание, радушие, лёгкость в общении, приятность в общении and even гостеприимство.

    Could you give the full context please.
    Я так думаю.

    Re: Grace

    ClaireD Do you need a synonym for Russian or English?
    And it would be nice to know a context.
    "Все" и "Сразу" это "Ничего" и "Никогда"
    Please correct me when I'm wrong

    I'll add to Leof's list of close words this:

    достоинство, приличие
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    There is a good, though a bit dusty word "милость". It's obsolete and remains only in the form of address like "your Grace" (ваша Милость), or word-pairs like "God's Grace" (Божья милость). Any modern synonym means some particular 'Grace'. So if you want an exact equivalent it would be 'милость', if you need a modern one you need to provide a more definite context.

    Also a female name Grace translates as Мила.
