if you can sit in silence with a person for half an hour and yet be entirely comfortable,
you and that person can be friends. if you cannot, friends you'll never be and you need
not waste time in trying.
- lm montgomery (the blue castle)
i'm rereading several of lucy maude montgomery's books (most famous for "anne of green gables") - and am currently in the middle of one of my favourites, "the blue castle". right before the above quote, two of the main characters are just getting to know each other and run out of gas on an abandoned road. the guy says, "we'll just sit here, and if we think of anything worthwhile saying we'll say it. otherwise, not."
i think heaven will be like that. full of lovely silences that speak their own depth and joy. and only words that are aptly spoken.
