> Well, this seems to portend some interesting debate!!

I hope we have an enlightening discussion about the ideas in the book, not a debate about the war in Iraq.


> Why don't you translate that Latin for us hoi polloi ??

Since Patrick hasn't answered yet: I think the Latin means "Grant me chastity and continence, but not yet."  Saint Augustine said it in his early 30s, before he converted (in the early stages of converting?) to Catholicism.  It's in his work Confessions.
