I always felt that the great high privilege, relief, and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.
KATHERINE MANSFIELD, attributed, O Magazine, Aug. 2006
I have made it a rule of my life never to regret and never to look back. Regret is an appalling waste of energy.... You can't build on it; it's only good for wallowing in.
