Perfect Joy

Perfect Joy
“The ambitious run day and night in pursuit of honors, constantly in anguish about the success of their plans, dreading the miscalculation that may wreck everything. Thus they are alienated from themselves, exhausting their real life in service of the shadow created by their insatiable hope…. Perfect joy is without joy. Perfect praise is to be without praise.”
– Thomas Merton
