Idea for reflection – 22

Skyscape XIII

Do not depend on the hope of results … you may have to face the fact that your work will be apparently worthless and even achieve no result at all, if not perhaps results opposite to what you expect. As you get used to this idea, you start more and more to concentrate not on the results, but on the value, the rightness, the truth of the work itself … gradually you struggle less and less for an idea and more and more for specific people …. In the end, it is the reality of personal relationships that saves everything.
  – Thomas Merton, from The Letters of Thomas Merton
