Quote: Merton on solitude

Merton on solitude, something of which I’ve tasted only the tiniest crumbs. Something I crave, yet cultivate only negligently.

“Solitude is not a matter of being something more than other men, except by accident: for those who cannot be alone cannot find their true being and they are less than themselves.”
