If you want to identify me, ask me not where I live, or what I like to eat, or how I comb my hair, but ask me what I think I am living for, in detail, and ask me what I think is keeping me from living fully for the thing I want to live for.

Thomas Merton, 1915-1968
Trappist Monk, Author, Poet and Social Activist

    I love inspiring quotes - like this one that I got the other day - "Success always involveds risk. How can you steal second base if you keep your foot on first?"
