Calling all Augstinian fans!

A reader writes:

Dear Kelly,

I read the wonderful Augustine quote on your weblog: "Try to acquire those virtues which you think your brothers lack, and you will no longer see their defects, because you will not have them yourselves."

Do you know where it comes from?

Despite my, well, let's call it "exagerrated" Google prowess, I couldn't find the source. I posted it back in September, and know that I read it in a Navarre Biblical commentary for the reading of that day (Luke 6: 39-42) but that's as far as I was able to get.

Do you know the source? Post it here, or, if you're shy, email me (use the "Email Kelly" button on the left.) Thanks loads!
