Trust is a bond between two people that is found only when they are able to listen and understand where the other is coming from. That to me is the key to friendships and relationships
"You know that place between sleep and awake, the place where you can still remember dreaming? That’s where I’ll always love you, Peter Pan. That’s where I’ll be waiting."
- J. M. Barrie, Peter Pan
Whenever you find tears in your eyes, especially unexpected tears, it is well to pay the closest attention. They are not only telling you something about the secret of who you are, but more often than not God is speaking to you through them of the mystery of where you have come from and is summoning you to where, if your soul is to be saved, you should go to next.
—Frederick Buechner (originally published in Whistling in the Dark)
