On Friendship -- George Elliot ("Rejected, Dejected") SOTFW-SC

http://pandemo.livejournal.com/217554.html

Oh, the comfort, the inexpensive 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 a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
                                                                                                        ~ George Elliot
