Today’s Quote

friendship I

Oh, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person:
having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
but pour them all out, 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, 1819 – 1880 ~
English Novelist

  1. indeed, nothing is more valuable in life or comforting than a companion whose presence you do not even feel, much like you do not get conscious of the presence of your own self,, yet you derive strength and purpose in life being perpetually connected to that companion, trutworthy, intelligent , faithful and reliable, strong and supportive and encouraging, and one who can share your joy and your grief, multiplying the joy and halfing the grief.

  2. Could not have put it better than Mr Indrajit Rathore above!

    I think authors who are considered great have this unique quality of being able to state profound facts of life in a very lucid manner.
