Saint Augustine Quote
“What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.”
As quoted in Quote, Unquote (1977) by Lloyd Cory, p. 197.
“Hope has two beautiful daughters. Their names are anger and courage; anger at the way things are, and courage to see that they do not remain the way they are.”
As quoted in Spirituality and Liberation: Overcoming the Great Fallacy (1988) by Robert McAfee Brown, p. 136.
“It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels.”
In Latin: "Humilitas homines sanctis angelis similes facit, et superbia ex angelis demones facit." - As quoted in Manipulus Florum (c. 1306)

Quote of the day
“Finding the occasional straw of truth awash in a great ocean of confusion and bamboozle requires intelligence, vigilance, dedication and courage. But if we don't practice these tough habits of thought, we cannot hope to solve the truly serious problems that face us - and we risk becoming a nation of suckers, up for grabs by the next charlatan who comes along.”
