Saint Augustine's quotes
"Beauty is indeed a good gift of God; but that the good may not think it a great good, God dispenses it even to the wicked."
"Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all."
"Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe."
"Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need; the remainder is needed by others."
"Give me chastity and continence, but not yet."
"God does not give heed to the ambitiousness of our prayers, because he is always ready to give to us his light, not a visible light but an intellectual and spiritual one; but we are not always ready to receive it when we turn aside and down to other things out of a desire for temporal things."
"God is more truly imagined than expressed, and He exists more truly than He is imagined."
"God loves each of us as if there were only one of us."
"He that is kind is free, though he is a slave; he that is evil is a slave, though he be a king."
"Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance."
"I was in love with loving."
"Indeed, man wishes to be happy even when he so lives as to make happiness impossible."
"Men go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering."
"Never judge a philosophy by its abuse."
"Patience is the companion of wisdom."
"Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you."
"Sin is its own punishment."
"Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul."
"The argument is at an end."
"The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation."
