The man in the sycamore tree.


Sunrise at Mt. Beatitude

“If you want to identify me,” he says to the British officers who are questioning him, “ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair,


ask me what I think I am living for, in detail, and ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.

Between these two answers you can determine the identity of any person.”

― Thomas Merton
