Augustine For Today

October 27

“Humans go distances to admire the soaring mountains, the giant raging waves of the sea, the broad expanse of the silently flowing rivers, the seemingly infinite expanse of the ocean. They wander at the limitless paths of the stars but they ignore themselves. The feel no wonder at themselves. The fact, for example that I could not have spoken of the wonders above, unless I could see them in my memory with all of its endless expanse.”

Confessions, 10.8.15
