    I think I heard this quote in "The Longest Day" when the two Germans in the pill box see the Allies landing.

    Again... there's prob several variations of this quote from several movies.... but I think THAT one come from the movie "Patton". In reality I think the quote was spoken by Gen Rommel who wanted to shift a German panzer division to the French coast on the eve of the invasion and Hitler was sleeping and left word he wasn't to be disturbed.

    The full name of the book is "The City of God against the Pagans". In that book you will find the Augustine de Hippo quote that started this conversation. That's all I was trying to say. I wasn't translating De Civitate Dei.

    So anyone who credited Augustine with the quote "Cogito, ergo sum" was probably correct.... although there is a slight variation in the english translation. In the book which is written in English.. the quote is "I think, therefore I exist" rather than "I think therefore I am". Since I don't speak ancient latin I couldn't give you an exact answer as to what the exact quote was.

    Watching 1962 movie tonight:

    This is history. We are living an historical moment. We are going to lose the war because our glorious Führer has taken a sleeping pill and is not to be awakened. Sometimes I wonder which side God is on.

    OK, there's a book entitled The City of God against the Pagans. I don't think that is what I was wondering about.

    You refer to De Civitate Dei and say it is The city of God Against the Pagans. Now, I know I am nit picking here. De Civitate Dei = the city of god, no? So where is the "against the pagans" in the title you mention originally? It is not there, is it?

    Maybe it is like refering to the Principia Mathematica as just the "Principia" which is perfectly acceptable in certain circles but lost on most members of a whore board.

    No big deal here; just wondering.
