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)
From infancy to old age, each age in all men has its own special beauty.
(De div. quaest. LXXXIII q.44)
If you seek the Truth, follow the Path, for the Path is also the Truth. Go that way, you must go that way. It is through Christ that you come to Christ.
