    I try to image that others are doing their best — if it seems they are not, maybe its time to reflect on myself — it usually me that needs an adjustment whenever I feel upset and disappointment in others. ~ Eric

        Merton wrote lots of good books, poems and his work was very helpful for me in a time of need years ago — I greatly appreciate his positive outlook and work to help others. http://merton.org/
