"Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts, nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away."
George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans) 1819-1880

Note to self. I have to reread Eliot's novels and write down the many memorable things she has written. She was so full of insight!
