Augustine

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.

Complete abstinence is easier than perfect moderation.

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.

People travel to marvel at the mountains, seas, rivers and stars; and they pass right by themselves without astonishment.

He that is jealous is not in love.

Give me chastity and give me constance, but do not give them to me yet.

Love and then what you will, do.

The measure of love is to love without measure.

The good man is free, even if he is a slave. The evil man is a slave, even if he is a king.

No one learns except by friendship.

Stranger, here you will do well to tarry; here our highest good is pleasure.
