“Yes, I’m a terrific teacher : Grow, Sarah, but not too much.
Understand yourself, but not better than I understand you. Be
brave, but not so brave you don’t need me any more. Your silence
frightens me. When I’m in that silence, I hear nothing, I feel like

heart — because you hear it! I don’t have the signs that can ... I
can’t explain it, I’m sorry.”
