a few words from merton

"you have called me to gethsemani not to wear a label by which i can recognize myself and place myself in some kind of category. you do not want me to be thinking about what i am, but about what you are. or rather, you do not even want me to be thinking about anything much; for you would raise me above the level of thought. if i am always trying to figure out what i am and where i am and why i am, how will that work be done?"
- thomas merton, "dialogues with silence"
