A Quote. Of Limitation. Of Self-Knowing.

. . . iste alius modus, quo corporibus adhærent spiritus et animalia fiunt, omnino mirus est nec conprehendi ab homine potest, et hoc ipse homo est.

This other mode by which spirits cleave to bodies and make living things is entirely wonderful yet cannot be comprehended by man—and this is man himself.

—Augustine, Civitate Dei XXI.10
