Saint Augustine

Two loves make up these two cities: love of God makes Jerusalem, love of the world makes Babylon. Let each question himself as to what he loves, and he shall find of which he is a citizen.

What am I to Thee, that Thou shouldst demand my love and if I do not love Thee be angry and threaten such great woes?

Thou wert within and I abroad, and there I searched for thee.... Thou wert with me but I was not with Thee.
