“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 quotes (English Victorian Novelist. Pseudonym of Mary Ann Evans, 1819–1880)
I have always loved this quote. But, now that I have studied trust more fully, I see that this is a definition of what trust feels like. It is an experience of trust.
