-- Against Faustus 22, 52
Like I say, "Fides, cogitatio, actio -- faith, thought, action." Then again, Augustne is being so silly -- hasn't he ever seen the ease of downloading knowledge a la The Matrix? Pshaw, Augustine, get wit it. we're so "beyond" you.Prayer. Lord, you truly gave me free will, but without you my effort is worthless. You give help since you are the one who created, and you do not abandon your creation.
-- Commentary on Psalm 26 (2), 17
