“It is the glory of the monastic life to be founded in loyalty and absolute sincerity, to be delivered
from all the diplomacy and shiftiness of the world. Happy those who have nothing to hide, who
know nothing of torturous or subterranean maneuvers, who live full in the day. Happy those who
have brought all their being to a perfect simplicity, and who, before God and before men, are
what they are, without duality, stiffness, or effort, but with flexibility and ease.”

– Dom Paul Delatte, OSB, Abbot of Solesmes
