Quote of the Day #67 - Augustine


This is a quote from Henry Bettenson's translation (1972) of Augustine's book City of God:
...when the good and wicked suffer alike, the identity of their sufferings does not mean that there is no difference between them. Though the sufferings are the same, the sufferers remain different. Virtue and vice are not the same, even if they undergo the same torment. The fire which makes gold shine makes chaff smoke...
~Augustine (City of God (Penguin Classics), 1984, Book I, Chapter 8)
