First I must know “Amos” before I can know “You” (capital A and Y). If I only know “amos” I will only come to know “you” (lowercase a and y). Deep calls to deep (Ps. 42:7).

Thomas Merton said, “Very often it is the solitary who has the most to say; not that he uses many words, but what he says is new, substantial, and unique. He has something real to give because he himself is real.”
