the principle of all perfection ...

... "The monk in hiding himself from the world becomes not less than himself, not less of a person, but more of a person, more truly and perfectly himself: for his personality and individuality are perfected in their true order, the spiritual, interior order, of union with God, the principle of all perfection."
Thomas Merton

take a look at that photo. I don't think that's a monk. I think it's a habit on a stand.
