I’ve seen this tag around the blogosphere and decided to give it a try.  I do love reading random quotes.  Some are merely interesting and others make me stop and think.

 

The rules are simple:

  • Choose the author or philosopher (it should be one from the Ancient Time). Don’t know anyone? Google it. It shouldn’t be so hard.
  • Choose 3 quotes of this author/philosopher. The country of origin – doesn’t matter (Egypt, Greece…Italy). Add any info or explanation if you like.
  • Share those quotes and nominate 3 to 6 people; Ops, that’s not obligatory.
  • The title for the post? Choose something cool.

My Choice:

My choice is Saint Augustine, also known as Augustine of Hippo.

He was a bishop of Hippo Regius in Northern Africa. He was an ancient Christian theologian who played a significant role in the development of early Western philosophy marked by the merging of Greek philosophy and Judeo-Christian religious traditions. He had an intellectual bent of mind and was fascinated by philosophical enquiries, and spent his early life exploring various philosophical and religious theories.  (The Famous People)

 

Quotes:

Humility is the foundation of all the other virtues: hence, in the soul in which this virtue does not exist there cannot be any other virtue except in mere appearance.

Miracles are not contrary to nature, but only contrary to what we know about nature.

Happiness is to continue to desire what one possesses.

 

Hope you enjoyed these little bits of inspiration!

        My apartment door is covered with them. People come from all throughout the building to see the latest quotes on my door. I try to put the amusing ones there so they can be entertained while I am pulling myself up and making my way to open the door for visitors.
