‘EVERY MOMENT AND EVERY EVENT

of every person’s life on earth plants something in the soul. For just as the wind carries thousands of invisible and visible winged seeds, so the stream of time brings with it germs of spiritual vitality that come to rest imperceptibly in the minds and wills of human beings. Most of these unnumbered seeds perish and are lost, because we are not prepared to receive them: for such seeds as these cannot spring up anywhere except in the good soil Thomas Merton, Seeds of Contemplation
