A Quote from St. Augustine


I thought I should be impossibly miserable if I had to forgo the embraces of a young women; and I did not think of Your mercy as a healing medicine for that weakness, because I had never tried it. I thought that continence was a matter our own strength, and I knew I had not the strength; for in my utter foolishness I did not know the word of Your Scripture; that none can be continent unless you give it. (Confessions - St. Augustine)
