What Weight Raised (Quote)

Our body with its weight strives toward its own place. Weight makes not downward only, but to its own place also. The fire mounts upward, a stone sinks downward.... My weight is my love; by that am I carried, whithersoever I be carried. We are inflamed by thy gift and are carried upward: we wax hot within, and we go on.
~ Augustine, quoted in Jean-Francois Lyotard's *The Confession of Augustine*
