The Overstory - Richard Powers - A Short Summary and Review

Thoughts in Solitude - Thomas Merton - A Short Summary & Review

 


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 Thomas Merton 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 Thomas Merton:

Do books speak to you?

Do you enjoy silence?

My review of Thoughts in Solitude:


A perfect book found at the perfect time.

Deep thoughts said quietly.

I may be planning a desert pilgrimage now...
