Thought of Saint Augustine
Man was not created as an irrational animal bent toward the earth but, erect in stature, a reminder to look above.
(De Civ. Dei XXII, 24, 4)
Love overwhelms us as we look for the truth.
(De Trinitate I, 5, 8)
God has to be searched and invoked in the secret of a rational soul, which is called the interior man.
(De magistro 1)
