Sunday Citar - Thomas Merton


Original painting by Karen Margulis

Sunday Citar time with Fresh Mommy. Here are two of my favorite Thomas Merton quotes. My father introduced me to Thomas Merton's writing and philosophy. He knew how to "seed the mind" and spark thought and encourage conversation.

Thomas Merton:

"Every moment and every event of every man's life on earth plants something in his soul."

"Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony."

Love the quotes, perfect with the sunflower. I've always felt that everything matters, everything counts. Everything. Yes, it becomes a part of our souls.

ModernMom said...

Wow. Does that second quote ring true for me!

Gerri said...

That second quote is SO true. Every second I am striving for that balance. The key for me is slowing down and not biting off TOO much. :)

Such a beautiful painting and I love the quotes! So inspiring!

Kim said...

I think this second Merton quote is so true. So often we think that happiness is something magical and distant. I love that painting...it reminds me a bit of that Van Gogh - am I thinking of the right one of the Sunflowers?
