Anne Brontë Quote
This paper will serve instead of a confidential friend into whose ear I might pour forth the overflowings of my heart. It will not sympathise with my distresses, but then it will not laugh at them, and, if I keep it close, it cannot tell again; so it is, perhaps, the best friend I could have for the purpose.
Helen Graham (Ch. XVIII : The Miniature) - The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (1848)
