Thoughts on Augustine Confessions

"People are moved to wonder by mountain peaks, by vast waves of the sea, by broad waterfalls on rivers, by the all-embracing extent of the ocean, by the revolutions of the stars. But in themselves they are uninterested." (Augustine Confessions, X.viii.15)

But my God, Who created the highest mountains, the deepest seas, the broadest waterfalls, the widest oceans, the amazing stars, and yet so intensely interested in the humble human race, including me. Such manifestations of love lifts me up when felt in the heart.
