Quote of the Day

"I only wish that the ability he has displayed were sound and less like that which insane persons are accostumed to exhibit."

- St. Augustine, On Nature and Grace, referring to the heresiarch, Pelagius, as quoted by one of my students in her paper.

I'm sure we can all think of someone in our lives to whom that sentiment fittingly applies. ;)
