Confessions

I started reading Confessions by St. Augustine. I figured I should read the most famous work by the man my son was named after. This passage put tears in my eyes:

Need it concern me if some people cannot understand this? Let them ask what it means, and be glad to ask: but they may content themselves with the question alone. For it is better for them to find You [God] and leave the question unanswered than to find the answer without finding You.
