Relative Sanity, Walls and Thomas Merton
a rainbow watercolour b.thomas witzel
with quote of the day by Thomas Merton
One of the most important tasks today is to clear the atmosphere so that people can understand their plight without hatred, without fury, without desperation, and with the minimum of goodwill.
The illuminated crowd, Montreal
A gentleman at the Tucson court house
A humble and objective seriousness is necessary for the long task of restoring mutual confidence and preparing the way for the necessary work of collaboration in building world peace.
Manzanar internment camp, California
The restoration of a climate of relative sanity is perhaps more important than specific decisions , regarding the morality of this or that strategy, this or that pragmatic policy.
