The Search for Long Life

Augustine said: "Wicked persons are allowed to go on living so that they may be reformed, or so that by means of their wickedness the virtuous may be put to the test."

Jerome said: "The shortness of this life is the penalty for people's sins. With all your might, hate what the world loves. Be dead to the world and let the world be dead to you. During your life despise what you cannot possess after your death."

Isidore said: "Only in this life can you do good. What is awaiting you in the future life is not the opportunity of doing good but the reward of having done it."
