Augustine on the Limitations of Human Life

“If an inquirer thinks he ought to settle absolutely every question, great or small, before becoming a Christian, he little appreciates the limitations of human life or himself.”

Augustine of Hippo, Epistolae 102.38
in Henry Chadwick’s Augustine of Hippo: A Life (Oxford, 2009), 29.
   (“St. Augustine in His Study,” by Vittore Carpaccio, 1502)
