A Quote. Of Contrariety. Of Conversion.

. . . insaniebam salubriter et moriebar vitaliter, gnarus quid mali essem, et ignarus quid boni post paululum futurus essem.

I was insane for the sake of health and was dying for the sake of life, knowing what evil I was and not knowing what good I might become after a little while.

—Augustine, Confessiones VIII.viii
