“Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another.”
Thomas Merton, Love and Living
“If I had a message to my contemporaries it is surely this: Be anything you like, be madmen, drunks, and bastards of every shape and form, but at all costs avoid one thing: success . . . If you are too obsessed with success, you will forget to live. If you have learned only how to be a success, your life has probably been wasted.”
Thomas Merton, Love and Living
“The point where you become free not to kill, not to exploit, not to destroy, not to compete, because you are no longer afraid of death or the devil or poverty or failure. If you discover this nakedness, you’d better keep it private. People don’t like it.”
Thomas Merton, Love and Living
