A Fairy Tale?
In spite of days that seemed like a bad dream, and all the times that things haven't gone the way you planned, do you still believe there is something out there that will make your life better?
We all want to live happily; in the whole human race there is no one who does not assent to this proposition, even before it is fully articulated. — St Augustine, De moribus eccl. 1,3,4: PL 32,1312.
How is it, then, that I seek you, Lord? Since in seeking you, my God, I seek a happy life, let me seek you so that my soul may live, for my body draws life from my soul and my soul draws life from you. — St Augustine, Confessions 10,20: PL 32,791.
