Quotation[Louis] Bouyer's book on Newman, in the refectory, is very good - especially interested in the parts about Oxford. If I could have lived my undergraduate life over again - if I could do it now I mean! But I cannot and am glad in the end. What is done is done and my life is what it is - and the mercies of God have been very great.
Quotation SourceA Search for Solitude: Pursuing the Monk's True Life. The Journals of Thomas Merton, Volume 3, 1952-1960.; Edited by Lawrence S. Cunningham. / San Francisco : Harper Collins. 1996, p. 211
