The Essence of Friendship

Oh, the comfort,

the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person;

having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,

wheatbut 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
