quote by M. F. K. Fisher

I think that when two people are able to weave that kind of invisible thread of understanding and sympathy between each other, that delicate web, they should not risk tearing it. It is too rare, and it lasts too short a time at best.

— M. F. K. Fisher

Astonishing Love Is Delicate quotations
