"If you want to identify me,ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I am living for, in detail, ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for."

  3. I always love Thomas Merton. My father told me once that he visited the monastery in Kentucky where he lived and loved that book The Seven Storey Mountain. I read it as well but was more wowed by how he died. That's how weird I am --

  4. I love that he was once a communist and also a convert. I also love that he was able to marry East and West so readily in his personal spirituality, something that very few Catholic monks or priests I have known were able to do. His words make a great deal of sense to me and his involvement in politics and his compassion for the world, even in his isolation, make me respect him a great deal. The circumstances of his death were very odd.
