Dinah Craik Friendship Quote

Friday, April 24, 2009
Three great memes have been launched this Thursday: Think Green Thursday, Window Views, and Quotable Thursday. I think all of them are very interesting themes.

My friend Pamposh from the Womens Blogger Directory decided on a new meme called Quotable Thursday to share and spread some inspiration and wisdom. The minute I read her post, it already occurred to my mind that my first entry would have to be about friendship. A lovely bond I am striving for in my daily life. Something I really couldn't do without. Let me dedicate Dinah Craik's Friendship Quote :

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. 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. ~Dinah Craik, A Life for a Life, 1859

Thanks for hosting, Pamposh

Lovely quote, Rosidah, as expected from you! :) Indeed, since I found the Women Bloggers Directory, I have found so much more friendship too. It's wonderful.
Thanks for joining Quotable Thursday.

People have different ideas, different motives and different approach to friendship. If you can find a friend like one spoken of by Dinah Craik, then consider yourself blessed. "A true friend will love her friend without condition nonetheless."

Nice choice of quotation to share, Rosidah. You are full of wisdom.
