The Saturday Writing Quote – Merton on creative power

02_ClearwaterValley_Pastel_WEB“There is in us an instinct for newness, for renewal, for a liberation of creative power. We seek to awaken in ourselves a force which really changes our lives from within. And yet the same instinct tells us that this change is a recovery of that which is deepest, most original, most personal in ourselves.”

–Thomas Merton, “Choosing To Love The World”
