James Wood, comp.  Dictionary of Quotations.  1899.
Saint Ambrose
  Lust is a sharp spur to vice, which always putteth the affections into a false gallop.  1
  Nulla ætas ad perdiscendum est—There is no time of life past learning something.  2
  Prayer is the wing wherewith the soul flies to heaven; and meditation the eye with which we see God.  3
  True repentance is to cease from sin.  4
  Validius est naturæ testimonium quam doctrinæ argumentum—The testimony of nature is weightier than the arguments of the learned.  5
