A Quote by St Augustine on people

in

People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the sea,  at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the oceans, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.

A Quote by St Augustine on healing, freedom, wounds, and the soul

Was it for my good that the rein was laid loose, as it were, upon me, for me to sin? or was it not laid loose? If not, why does it still echo in our ears on all sides, "Let him alone, let him do as he will, for he is not yet baptized?" but as to bodily health, no one says, "Let him be worse wounded, for he is not yet healed." How much better then, had I been at once healed; and then, by my friends' diligence and my own, my soul's recovered health had been kept safe in Thy keeping who gavest it.
