Quotes Lisa Liked

Thomas Merton
“It is a kind of pride to insist that none of our prayers should ever be petitions for our own needs: for this is only another subtle way of trying to put ourselves on the same plane as God – acting as if we had no needs, as if we were not creatures, not dependent on Him and dependent, by His will, on material things, too.”
Thomas Merton, The Seven Storey Mountain

Thomas Merton
“What do you want to want to be, anyway?"
"I don't know; I guess what I want to be is a good Catholic."
"What you should say"--he told me--"what you should say is that you want to be a saint.”
Thomas Merton, The Seven Storey Mountain
