Here are the top most famous quotes by Thomas Merton.

  • Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another.
  • Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.
  • Just remaining quietly in the presence of God, listening to Him, being attentive to Him, requires a lot of courage and know-how.
  • Death is someone you see very clearly with eyes in the center of your heart: eyes that see not by reacting to light, but by reacting to a kind of a chill from within the marrow of your own life.
  • Solitude is not something you must hope for in the future. Rather, it is a deepening of the present, and unless you look for it in the present you will never find it.
  • By reading the scriptures I am so renewed that all nature seems renewed around me and with me. The sky seems to be a pure, a cooler blue, the trees a deeper green. The whole world is charged with the glory of God and I feel fire and music under my feet.
  • We are not at peace with others because we are not at peace with ourselves, and we are not at peace with ourselves because we are not at peace with God.
  • Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is its own reward.
  • Be good, keep your feet dry, your eyes open, your heart at peace and your soul in the joy of Christ.
  • Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.
