More thoughts from the journey…

“It is in deep solitude that I find the gentleness which I can truly love my brothers (and sisters). The more solitary I am the more affection I have for them…Solitude and silence teach me to love my brothers (and sisters) for what they truly are, not for what they say (or do).” Thomas Merton; The Sign of Jonas

“Let him who cannot be alone beware of community…let him who is not in community beware of being alone.” Dietrich Bonnhoffer

“Silence is intimately related to trust.” Richard Foster; The Celebration of Discipline
