"My God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself; and the fact that I think I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing; I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this, You will lead me by the right road, though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for You are ever with me and will never leave me to face my perils alone. Amen."

Thomas Merton
