Properly ordered love

“For bodily beauty is indeed created by God; but it is temporal and carnal, and therefore a lower, good; and if it is loved more than God is, Who is the eternal, inward and everlasting God, that love is as wrong as the miser’s when he forsakes justice out of his love for gold. The fault here, though, lies not with the gold, but with the man; and this is true of every created thing; though it is good, it can be loved well or ill; well when the proper order is observed, and ill when that order is disturbed,” Augustine, City of God, XV, Chapter 22.
