"Anima una et cor unum in Deum!" (Regula)

Thought of Saint Augustine
I thank you, Lord, my joy and my glory, my hope and my God. I thank you for your gifts to me. Keep them unharmed for me: they will be the making of me, and I shall be with you for my being is your gift.
(Confessions I, 20)
Habits support the intelligence just as a way of living leads to a way of life.
(In Io. Ev. XVIII, 7)
To have a good idea of God is the truest beginning of piety.
(De libero arbitrio I, 2,5)
