On true friendship

December 4, 2007

Oh, the comfort – the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person – having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain 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.

~ Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859



  1. Breathing in, breathing out …

  2. that was BEAUTIFUL……

  3. Dan ~ {{{{{{{{{{{{HUGS}}}}}}}}}}}} And please don’t stop breathing. That would be bad.

    Meleah ~ I’m so glad you liked it and hope that your holidays are tremendous. xoxoxo

  4. Its a wonderful comfort some are lucky to know.

  5. This is lovely and still so true. There is no greater comfort.

    I haven’t read it, but I shall. Thank you for pointing me in that direction.

  6. Pool ~ Indeed.

    Heart ~ My pleasure. I didn’t realize that the quote was actually from a book either, so I may need to add it to my list, especially since it’s from one of my favorite time periods.
