Words from St. Augustine

“He [human being] is but a tiny part of all that you have created. He bears about him his mortality, the evidence of his sinfulness, and the evidence that ‘you resist the proud’; yet this tiny part of all that you have created desires to praise you. You so excite him, that to praise you is his joy. For you have made us for yourself and our hearts are restless till they rest in you.” (Confessions, St. Augustine)
