QuotationI will go back to reading the The Woman Who Was Poor. And the Woman Who Was Poor is some novel! The second part is a better love story than Anthony and Cleopatra-the second part is magnificent, and ends with some mystical vision! All through the second part, or the last of the second part, there is a series of scenes as simple and clean as pictures by Blake.
Quotation SourceRun to the mountain: The Story of a Vocation. The journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 1, 1939-1941.; Edited by Patrick Hart, O.C.S.O. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1995, p. 296
