A Book to Read and Love: Thoughts in Solitude - Thomas Merton

 


A short summary of Thoughts in Solitude:

Thomas's thoughts on philosophy, current culture, and God were discovered during his time in the desert.

My favorite quote from the book:

"...man knows when he has found his vocation when he stops thinking about how to live and begins to live."


Questions to ponder while reading Thoughts in Solitude:

Do books speak to you?

Do you enjoy silence?

My thoughts about the book:


A perfect book found at the perfect time.

Deep thoughts said quietly.

I may be planning a desert pilgrimage now...
