Augustine of Hippo

Augustine of Hippo
God is always trying to give good things to us, but our hands are too full to receive them.
Miracles are not contrary to nature but only contrary to what we know about nature.
The truth is like a lion; you don’t have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.
God provides the wind, Man must raise the sail.
In order to discover the character of people we have only to observe what they love.
The measure of love is to love without measure.
If you believe what you like in the Gospel, and reject what you don't like, it is not the Gospel you believe, but yourself.
There is no saint without a past, no sinner without a future.
I was not yet in love, yet I loved to love...I sought what I might love, in love with loving.
The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.
Solvitur ambulando
In via, in patria
Do you wish to be great? Then begin by being. Do you desire to construct a vast and lofty fabric? Think first about the foundations of humility. The higher your structure is to be, the deeper must be its foundation.
