A Quote by Thomas Merton about the City and Nature

The city itself lives on its own myth. Instead of waking up and silently existing, the city people prefer a stubborn and fabricated dream: they do not care to be a part of the night, or to be merely of the world . They have constructed a world outside the world. against the world, a world of mechanical fictions which condemn nature and seek only to use it up, thus preventing it from renewing itself and man.

Yes this spoke to me. As i've lived in the City and the countryside and felt that the city was a proud and confusing and often lost place to be I'm going to ruminate some more on this quote and the ideas.

To Thine own Self be True

The Frost performs its secret ministry,Unhelped by any wind. Samuel Taylor Coleridge

And you won't find that Love comes easy but that Love is always right.So even when the dark clouds gather you will be the light.

All Intellect falls prey to Love's Glory ! Rumi

He Made the Lock, He also Made the Key ! Rumi
