Thought for the Day

From THE SIGN OF JONAS by Thomas Merton, entry for Sunday,November 19, 1950:

"Silence not a virtue, noise not a sin. True. But the turmoil and confusion and constant noise of modern society are the expression of the ambiance of its greatest sins - it godlessness, its despair. A world of propaganda, of endless argument, vituperation, criticism, or simply of chatter, is a world without anything to live for."
