Augustine of Hippo also said...

Patience is the companion of wisdom.

Since love grows within you, so beauty grows. For love is the beauty of the soul.

Nor is it right to say there are three times: past, present and future. Perhaps it would be more correct to say: there are three times: a present of things past, a present of things present, a present of things future.

Custom is second nature.

What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.

The time present of things past is memory; the time present of things present is direct experience; the time present of things future is expectation.
