Grace makes us lovers of the law; but the law itself, without grace, makes us nothing but breakers of the law.

Augustine of Hippo, A Treatise of Grace and Free Will (c. 427), 38 in Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers 1, 5: 459.

He, then, who lawfully uses the law learns therein evil and good, and, not trusting in his own strength, flees to grace, by the help of which he may shun evil and do good.

Augustine of Hippo, A Treatise on Rebuke and Grace (c. 427), 2 in Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers 1, 5: 472.
