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 with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.

A Chinese Proverb

That the birds of worry and care fly above your head,
this you cannot change,
but that they build nests in your hair,
this you can prevent.

A little quote from Florence today, typed out on a small piece of paper. I'm not sure where it came from, the small paper is loose in the book. A typical favorite quote, it doesn't say much and then speaks volumes when you think about it a little longer.
