Thomas Merton – On Humility and Authenticity

“We cannot achieve greatness unless we lose all interest in being great … It is, therefore, a very great thing to be little, which is to say, to be ourselves. And when we are truly ourselves we lose most of the futile self-consciousness that keeps us constantly comparing ourselves with others in order to see how big we are.”

~Thomas Merton
