Past and present I find in all movement of things; but it is not so in the Truth that remains forever; I only find the present in her, and this is incorruptible; this cannot be said of creatures.
(In Io. Ev. XXXVIII, 10)
You made us for yourself, oh Lord, and our hearts are restless until they rest in you.
Necessity is the mother of all human actions.
(En. in ps. 83, 8)
