5 Quotes from St Augustine of Hippo

1. “Hear the other side.”

2. “Beauty grows in you to the extent that love grows, because charity itself is the soul’s beauty.”

3. “The world is a great book, of which they that never stir from home read only a page.”

4. “People travel to wonder t the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of rivers, at the cast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.”

5. “Already I had learned from thee that because a thing is eloquently expressed it should not be taken to be as necessarily true, nor because it is uttered with stammering lips should it be supposedly false.”
