A thought by Thomas Merton

A thought by Thomas Merton: "

Fr. M. Louis (Thomas) Merton, OCSO (+1968)Every moment and every event of every man’s life on earth plants something in his soul. For just as the wind carries thousands of invisible and visible winged seeds, to the stream of time brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptibly in the minds and wills of men. Most of these unnumbered seeds perish and are lost, because men are not prepared to receive them; for such seeds as these cannot spring up except in the good soul of liberty and desire.

- Thomas Merton, OCSO (+1968), Seeds of Contemplation.
