“One thing common to the millions of conformist individualists is that they are suffering under the delusion that they are alone and fighting a back-to-the-wall losing battle against authority. Actually, the only man who stands alone today is the person (not individual) who makes decisions which are basically moral, and who takes full responsibility.” (1961)
“Man is only happy in cooperating with his individual destiny. All men are destined to perfect virtue.
Some men are destined to achieve virtue before death.
Some are destined to achieve it after death.
It is a special mark of providence to have the opportunity of complete humility before death. The longer before death it is—the greater the mark of God’s love.”
(October 19, 1929)
“A person comes the nearest to being real of anything in the world.” (1964)
“The contemporary dichotomy: The individual vs. the person
“The individual: highest duty toward society
“The Person: highest responsibility to God.”
