Dear folks,

Could you please tell me, where is the following quote from St. Augustine from? From what work of his?

"Hunger is a bad counselor, but worse are lies, superstition and ignorance.
Rediscover them and you come near the true God."

Thanks,

G.

This exact translation is not from any publication from St Augustine that is published on the internet. Sorry, but it appears to be falsely credited.

The quote seems to be from a movie set in 16th century Italy. The main character is a street kid who lives a life of petty crime inorder to not starve. He is hanged at the age of 14 by the Inquisition. The quote seems to imply that hunger leads to sin but much worse is the Inquisition of the Church. Rediscover your Faith and come to God. (The movie is in spanish with no sub title so I have not fact checked this. The source is a compilation from the internet.)
