THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS ARE THE HARDEST TO SAY...

The most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them -- words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they're brought out. But it's more than that, isn't it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you've said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That's the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear.

Najvažnije stvari je najteže reći. To su stvari kojih se sramimo jer ih riječi umanjuju, a kad ih izgovorimo, stvari koje su se činile neograničenima dok su bile u našoj glavi, stisnu se na običnu, životnu veličinu. Ali ima tu još nešto, zar ne? Najvažnije stvari su preblizu mjestu gdje je zakopano naše tajno srce, kao putokazi prema blagu koje bi neprijatelji rado ukrali. I dogodi se da s naporom otkrijemo neku tajnu a da nas ljudi čudno gledaju, ne shvaćajući što smo uopće rekli ni zašto smo mislili da je tako važno da smo bili na rubu suza dok smo govorili. Mislim da je to najgore. Kad tajna ostane zaključana ne zato što nije ispričana nego zato što je nitko nije razumio.
