A WISDOM QUOTE by Tomas Merton on “Humility”

Humility

In humility is the greatest freedom. 

As long as you have to defend the imaginary self

 that you think is important, you lose your peace of heart.

As soon as you compare that shadow with the shadows of other people,

 you lose all joy, because you have begun to trade in unrealities and

 there is no joy in things that do not exist.

~Thomas Merton
