Quote of the Day #103 - Augustine


This is a quote from Henry Bettenson's translation (1972) of Augustine's book City of God:
The Heavenly City outshines Rome, beyond comparison. There, instead of victory, is truth; instead of high rank, holiness; instead of peace, felicity; instead of life, eternity.
~Augustine (City of God (Penguin Classics), 1984, Book II, Chapter 29)
