Thomas Merton: “Thoughts In Solitude”

“Society, to merit its name, must be made up not of numbers, or of mechanical units, but of persons.  To be a person implies responsibility and freedom, and both of these imply a certain interior solitude, a sense of personal integrity, a sense of one’s own reality and of one’s ability to give himself to society.”
