Quote of the Day: Eliot

James Gardens - Toronto

James Gardens – Toronto

“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 a breath of kindness blow the rest away.”
~ George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans)
Middlemarch

Today I’d like to dedicate this quote to my beautiful and wonderful friend Jasmine, the endearing writer and talented photographer behind the fabulous Life is My Movie blog, who has always been a source of inspiration, positivity, wisdom, and stability; I couldn’t have asked for a better friend to share in life’s many ups-and-downs and ins-and-outs.

This quote reminds me of her unconditional love and non-judgmental nature; and also of the attitude of gentleness and kindness we should approach not only ourselves (and the thoughts and emotions of our own hearts), but all those we come into contact with in our lives.

May we all work towards being better friends towards one another.
