01:35:10 Natalie Beck: “The rush and pressure of modern life are a form perhaps the most common form of contemporary violence. To allow oneself to be carried away by a multitude of conflicting concerns, to surrender to too many demands, to commit oneself to too many projects, to want to help everyone and everything is to succumb to the violence of our times.” -Thomas Merton
