Quote #17 – Augustine

But love is greater gift than knowledge; for whenever a man has the gift of knowledge, love is necessary by the side of it, so that he is not puffed up. For “love does not envy, does not vaunt itself, is not puffed up.” (1 Cor. 13.4)

From: On Grace and Free Will by Augustine, chapter 40
