St Augustine Quote

amicitia quoque hominum caro nodo dulcis est propter unitatem de multis animis.

Likewise human friendship is a precious, delightful knot on account of the unity it brings to many souls. (Confessions, 2.5.10)

Henry Chadwick translates;
"‘Human friendship is also a nest of love and gentleness because of the unity it brings about between many souls."
