Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all 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 a breath of kindness blow the rest away. 
— George Eliot  

Fog of Hope

Tell me what’s the difference
between hope and waiting.

Because my heart doesn’t know.

It constantly cuts itself on the glass of waiting;
It constantly gets lost in the fog of hope.

— Anna Kamienska, from A Nest Of Quiet
