“The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing… not healing, not curing… that is a friend who cares.”  – Henri Nouwen, born on this day in 1932

“Another unsettling element in modern art is that common symptom of immaturity, the dread of doing what has been done before.”
Novelist, Edith Wharton, born on this day in 1862
