Thomas Merton on Happiness
Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony. - Thomas Merton
If you've never read Thomas Merton, you need to. His 'Seven Story Mountain' is often compared to Augustine's Confessions and Merton has turned many Jesus way followers towards the contemplative life.
This quote of Merton's, we think, is the perfect quote for the morning, as you reflect on how to achieve happiness and peace throughout the day.
