Augustine explores many of the virtues of his day: pride, ambition, soft endearments, curiosity, simplicity, the desire for a quiet life, abundance, generosity, and excellence are all exposed for the vain human desires that lie at their bottom. God is the fount of all virtue, and Augustine explains that any "virtue" that is not founded in obedience to God is an illusion, and possibly a sin.

Thank you
