For the film, see Frailty (film).

Frailty is the characteristic of being frail, delicate, easily hurt or damaged.


  • Glass antique! 'twixt thee and Nell
    Draw we here a parallel.
    She, like thee, was forced to bear
    All reflections, foul or fair.
    Thou art deep and bright within,—
    Depths as bright belong'd to Gwynne;
    Thou art very frail as well,
    Frail as flesh is,—so was Nell.
  • I feel like I live in a world made of cardboard. Always taking constant care not to break something. To break someone. Never allowing myself to lose control, even for a moment, or someone could die.
  • This is the porcelain clay of human kind.
  • Unthought-of Frailties cheat us in the Wise.
  • Sometimes we are devils to ourselves,
    When we will tempt the frailty of our powers,
    Presuming on their changeful potency.
