Biography of Augustine

Augustine was born in Tagaste, Numidia in North Africa. His mother was a Christian, but his father remained a pagan until late in life. After a rather unremarkable childhood, marred only by a case of stealing pears, Augustine drifted through several philosophical systems before converting to Christianity at the age of thirty-one. At the age of nineteen, Augustine read Cicero’s Hortensius, an experience that led him into the fascination with philosophical questions and methods that would remain with him throughout his life. After a few years as a Manichean, he became attracted to the more skeptical positions of the Academic philosophers. Although tempted in the direction of Christianity upon his arrival at Milan in 383, he turned first to neoplatonism, During this time, Augustine fathered a child by a mistress. This period of exploration, including its youthful excesses (perhaps somewhat exaggerated) are recorded in Augustine’s most widely read work, the Confessions. (Taken from CCEL.org)



Quotes by Augustine

Temperance is love surrendering itself wholly to Him who is its object; courage is love bearing all things gladly for the sake of Him who is its object; justice is love serving only Him who is its object, and therefore rightly ruling; prudence is love making wise distinction between what hinders and what helps itself.
Charity is no substitute for justice withheld.
Pray as though everything depended on God. Work as though everything depended on you.
Punishment is justice for the unjust.
Complete abstinence is easier than perfect moderation.
I have learnt to love you late, Beauty at once so ancient and so new!
Forgiveness is the remission of sins. For it is by this that what has been lost, and was found, is saved from being lost again.
Thou must be emptied of that wherewith thou art full, that thou mayest be filled with that whereof thou art empty.
The confession of evil works is the first beginning of good works.
Habit, if not resisted, soon becomes necessity.
