Thomas Merton
b. 1-31-1915; Prades, France
d. 12-10-1968; Bangkok, Thailand

Poet, teacher, social activist and student of comparative religion Thomas Merton wrote more than 70 books, mostly on spirituality, as well as scores of essays and reviews. As a Trappist monk he became well known for his dialogues with other faiths and his non-violent stand during the race riots and Vietnam War of the 1960s.

As Merton was leaving the stage after delivering a speech at a peace conference in Bangkok his parting remark was “Now I am going to disappear.” A short time later he died from touching a poorly grounded electric fan while stepping out of his bath.

Thomas Merton quotes ~
• “Peace demands the most heroic labor and the most difficult sacrifice. It demands greater heroism than war. It demands greater fidelity to the truth and a much more perfect purity of conscience.”
• “Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is its own reward.”
• “Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone - we find it with another.”
• “Happiness is not a matter of intensity but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.”
• “A life is either all spiritual or not spiritual at all. No man can serve two masters. Your life is shaped by the end you live for. You are made in the image of what you desire.”
• “In the last analysis, the individual person is responsible for living his own life and for “finding himself.” If he persists in shifting his responsibility to somebody else, he fails to find out the meaning of his own existence.”
• “Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
• “What can we gain by sailing to the moon if we are not able to cross the abyss that separates us from ourselves? This is the most important of all voyages of discovery, and without it, all the rest are not only useless, but disastrous.”
• “The least of the work of learning is done in the classroom.”
• “The whole idea of compassion is based on a keen awareness of the interdependence of all these living beings, which are all part of one another, and all involved in one another.”
• “We are so obsessed with doing that we have no time and no imagination left for being. As a result, men are valued not for what they are but for what they do or what they have - for their usefulness.”
• “Advertising treats all products with the reverence and the seriousness due to sacraments.”
• “If you want to study the social and political history of modern nations, study hell.”
• “October is a fine and dangerous season in America, a wonderful time to begin anything at all. You go to college, and every course in the catalogue looks wonderful.”

Lucretia Mott
b. 1-3-1793; Nantucket, MA
d. 11-11-1880

“The cause of Peace has had my share of efforts, taking the ultra non-resistance ground - that a Christian cannot consistently uphold, and actively support, a government based on the sword, or whose ultimate resort is to the destroying weapons.” - Lucretia Mott

Lucretia Mott (née Coffin) was educated at a Quaker boarding school and eventually became a teacher. She was drawn to activism when she discovered the male teachers were paid twice as much as the women teachers. She was also an abolitionist and one of the founders of Swarthmore College in 1864.

Lucretia Mott quotes ~
• “The world has never yet seen a truly great and virtuous nation, because in the degradation of women, the very fountains of life are poisoned at their source.”
• “My conviction led me to adhere to the sufficiency of the light within us, resting on truth for authority, not on authority for truth.”
• “I have no idea of submitting tamely to injustice inflicted either on me or on the slave. I will oppose it with all the moral powers with which I am endowed. I am no advocate of passivity.”
• “The cause of Peace has had my share of efforts, taking the ultra non-resistance ground – that a Christian cannot consistently uphold, and actively support, a government based on the sword, or whose ultimate resort is to the destroying weapons.”
• “It is not Christianity, but priestcraft that has subjected woman as we find her.”
• “If our principles are right, why should we be cowards?”

• “A few great minds are enough to endow humanity with monstrous power, but a few great hearts are not enough to make us worthy of using it.”
• “It is sometimes important for science to know how to forget the things she is surest of.”
• “I should have no use for a paradise in which I should be deprived of the right to prefer hell.”
• “Kill a man, and you are a murderer. Kill millions of men, and you are a conquerer. Kill everyone, and you are a god.”
