"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

The time for contemplation is the spring that feeds our action, and our action will be as deep as the spring.  We need time to allow the spirit to clear the obstacles – the clinging debris and mud – that keeps the spring from flowing freely from its clear, deep source.  And we need time for the spring to overflow into insightful and compassionate action.

Thomas Merton
