Quote – Augustine on Good and Evil

Just in case our economy really does collapse in ruin (though I sure hope it doesn’t!), here’s Augustine, from the City of God, Book 3:

[E]vil men account those things alone evil which do not make men evil…. It grieves them more to own a bad house than a bad life, as if it were man’s greatest good to have everything good but himself. (Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers 2.43)
