Gentle;

                                                            dense;

                                                                        abrasive;

                                                     coarse;

                                                                                   masculine;

            light;

                                    warm;

                                                  penetrable;

                                                                                                rigid;

       flaccid;

                        delicate;

                                                                        bold;

                                    smooth;

                                                            solid;

                                                                                  sharp;

                                                                                             wielding;

            feminine;

                             malleable;

                                                quiet;



                                                                        strong;

                                                                                                hard.


Nothing is one thing or the other.
