Blessing of a friendly ear

April 2, 2011

Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person,
having neither to weigh thoughts, nor measure words, but to pour them all out
just as they are, chaff and grain together knowing that a faithful hand
will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.

– George Eliot
