A Quote by Dinah Maria Mulock Craik on friendship, heart, kindness, rest, and worth

A friend is one to whom one may pour out all the contents of one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.

A Quote by Dinah Maria Mulock Craik on friends, comfort, safety, friendship, and words

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.
