Thomas Merton: Solitude


“Is it true to say that one goes into solitude to “Get at the root of existence”? It would be better simply to say that in solitude one is at the root. He who is alone and is conscious of what his solitude means, finds himself simply in the ground of life.”–Thomas Merton

Love and Living by Thomas Merton (Harcourt, p 22)
