Tenue de route

"By making a vow of stability the monk renounces the vain hope of wandering off to find a perfect monastery. This implies a deep act of faith: the recognition that it does not much matter where we are or whom we live with. Stability becomes difficult for a man whose monastic ideal contains some note, some element of the extraordinary. All monastaries are more or less ordinary. Its ordinariness is one of its greatest blessings."

- Thomas Merton
" I promise that I shall never give up, and that I'll die yelling and laughing"

- Jack Kerouac
