Commentary: Gauḍīya-bhāṣya by Śrīla Bhaktisiddhānta Sarasvatī Ṭhākura:

In the Uttara Rāma-carita (3.23) it is stated:

vajrād api kaṭhorāṇi mṛdūni kusumād api lokottarāṇāṃ cetāṃsi ko hi vijñātum īśvaraḥ

“The hearts of those above common behavior are sometimes harder than a thunderbolt and sometimes softer than a flower. How can one accommodate such contradictions in great personalities?”
