contemplation

“No man has a right
to lead such a life of contemplation
as to forget in his own ease
the service due to his neighbor;
nor has any man a right
to be so immersed in active life
as to neglect the contemplation of God.”
- Saint Augustine

  1. What a great quotation! I love the balance in it, like two hedges that keep us on the right path. Is that from his Confessions?
