St. Augustine is one of the most celebrated, if complex, saints of Christianity. As we noted yesterday in this blog, his mother was tireless in her prayer for his conversion and he emerged as one of the most celebrated theologians of Christianity. I am a fan of the “softer side” of Augustine. Here are a few of his sayings that I find true, inspiring, and/or consoling.

God loves each of us as if there were only one of us.

People go abroad to wonder at the heights of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motions of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering.

Our hearts are restless, O God, until we rest in You.
