"We are already one.
But we imagine we are not.
And what we have to recover is our original unity.
What we have to be is what we already are."
(The Asian Journal of Thomas Merton, New York: New Directions, 1973)
"Our ambitions must be broad enough
to include the aspirations and needs of others,
for their sakes and for our own."
"Individually we are one drop;
together we are an ocean."
