“In every page of the Scriptures” by Augustine of Hippo (A.D. 354-430)

“In every page of the Scriptures, while I pursue my search as a son of Adam in the sweat of my brow, Christ either openly or covertly meets and refreshes me. Where the discovery is laborious my ardor is increased, and the spoil obtained is eagerly devoured, and is hidden in my heart for my nourishment.”

–Aurelius Augustine, Contra Faustum Manichaeum , 12.27, in Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers, Vol. IV: Augustine: The Writings Against the Manichaeans and Against the Donatists, Ed. Philip Schaff (Edinburgh: T&T Clark, 400/1887), 192.
