Half His Soul

“He spoke rightly who said that his friend was ‘half his soul.’ I felt that my soul and my friend’s were one soul in two bodies, and life filled me with horror, as I had no wish to live on, a mere half of myself….

This is the source of our grief if someone dies; this is why we are darkened with sorrow, why sweetness is turned to bitterness, why the heart streams with tears.  It is the dead who have lost their life, but the living experience death.”

Augustine
