Mary Ann Evans

December 15, 2005

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
