“I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure that you are of the same mind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear.” ― George Eliot

    Adrienne, thank you for giving us this beautiful quote by George Eliot.
    So sensitive and true.
    Th photo is great too.


    1. I imagined the young man in the midst of revelry with friends getting a note from a loved one…it broke my heart!


  2. Adrienne, I’m so glad you explained your photo choice as I couldn’t understand why not a pic of George Eliot – Mary Anne Evans. But it makes sense as an illustration of someone waiting for that moment of contact. And aren’t all of the men so handsome!


    1. Hehe. Yes, the men are very handsome. 😉
