No Man Is an Island

Cover of "No Man Is an Island"Cover of No Man Is an IslandFrom Thomas Merton's No Man Is an Island, I think it one of his best books.

The spiritual life is oriented toward God, rather than toward the immediate satisfaction of the material needs of life, but it is not, for all that, a life of unreality or a life of dreams. On the contrary, without a life of the spirit, our whole existence becomes unsubstantial and illusory.
