“abandon all things”

“All the restlessness I can create for myself looking for liberty where I know I have never been able to find it. Why?

The answer is, not only in war but always liberty is menaced: only not so brutally. And the solution only this, to abandon all things, only love God and thy neighbor. First: abandon all things.”

-Thomas Merton
