Augustine On: Sinless Perfection

"Whoever thinks that in this mortal life a person may so disperse the mists of bodily and carnal imaginings as to possess the unclouded light of changeless truth, and to cleave to it with the unswerving constancy of a spirit wholly estranged from the common ways of life - such a person understands neither what he seeks, nor who he is who seeks it."

- Augustine, On the Harmony of the Gospels
