“Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person.  Having neither to weigh words nor measure thoughts but pouring them all out like chaff and grain together–certain that a faithful hand will keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.”

George Eliot
