Quote of the Day #175 - Augustine


A quote from Augustine's Confessions, translated by Edward Pusey:
Great art Thou, O Lord, and greatly to be praised; great is Thy power, and Thy wisdom infinite. And Thee would man praise; man, but a particle of Thy creation; man, that bears about him his mortality, the witness of his sin, the witness that Thou resistest the proud: yet would man praise Thee; he, but a particle of Thy creation. Thou awakest us to delight in Thy praise; for Thou madest us for Thyself, and our heart is restless, until it repose [rest] in Thee.
~Augustine (The Confessions, Book 1, Chapter 1)
