Daily Quote from the Early Church Fathers

“Gravity keeps everything in its own place. Fire climbs up, while a stone goes down. Elements that are not in their own place are restless until they find it. This applies also to us. My weight is my love; wherever I go, I am driven by it. By the love of God we catch fire ourselves and, by moving up, find our place and our rest.” (Augustine of Hippo, 354-430 A.D., excerpt from Confessions 13,9)
