Managing Monday: Some final (for a while) Augustine quotes…

Posted by on Feb 29, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

February is drawing to a close all too quickly. Here are a final set (well, for a while) of three Augustine of Hippo (354-430) quotes to help us manage Monday.

  • Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe.

 

  • People travel to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean; and they pass by themselves without wondering.

 

  • Since you cannot do good to all, you are to pay special attention to those who, by the accidents of time, or place, or circumstances, are brought into closer connection with you.

 

Since this is our last week of Augustine quotes, I’ll add in a fourth and finish with his most famous words…

 

You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.

 

Next Monday we will take a look at some Paul Tillich quotes.
