No Man Is an Island

So true. We should spend more time loving people than trying to change others into who we want them to be.

Beechwood Ministry

“The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise, we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them”

Thomas Merton, No Man Is an Island
