Anselm of Canterbury Quotes

For I do not seek to understand in order to believe, but I believe in order to understand. For I believe this: unless I believe, I will not understand.

Spare me through your mercy, do not punish me through your justice.

Thus you are just not because you give what is owed, but because you do what is appropriate to you as the highest good.
