Sunday Quote



The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.

-Thomas Merton

I love that quote you used by Thomas Merton. Sue can I borrow it for my blog quotes? There is a lovely web site called 'Under the Forest Flier' written by Jim & Nancy Forest. They mention Thomas Merton.
