In this excerpt from Lord Byron's "She Walks in Beauty," which phrases show that Byron's subject is rich in kindness and grace? She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impaired the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens o’er her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express, How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

    I don't want to mistake the lines about her appearance for words that would be considered "kind and graceful" I was thinking one option would be the first line 'She walks in beauty, like the night.' However that's discussing appearance, right? I was also thinking an option could be 'Had half impaired the nameless grace' @Robert136

    You are right on saying that the first line does not concern her kindness and grace

    As such you can disregard the first stanza as being irrelevant to the question.

    I believe you are already on the right track as the line you picked implies that she previously possessed kindness and grace which were now reduced to half the initial amount.

    The entire stanza is out. That leaves me to think that my best options are 'Had half impaired her nameless grace' Do you think I'm just choosing this because the word grace is in it.. Or is it implying kindness and grace?? As well as 'Where thoughts serenely sweet express, How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.'

    "thoughts serenely sweet express"= serene thoughts being expressed= kindness and grace

    Whether serenity equats kindness or grace is a big question.

    If I were you, "how pure, how dear their dwelling place" would be my pick
