Trouble explaining the Trinity
#3
The simplest way I've seen the Trinity broken down is within that of the individual (From St. Augustine):

Every person has a trinity that makes up their being, the mind or memory, the knowledge with which the mind knows itself, and the love of self and its knowledge.


This is true of the Godhead; where the Father is the mind/memory, the Son is self-knowledge/Word, and the Holy Spirit is Love. And all three of these make up God, as all three of these are God. Yet given His nature as God, they are each persons in themselves.

Does that make sense?

Edit: I was close, it was from Augustine.
"The Heart of Jesus is closer to you when you suffer, than when you are full of joy." - St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

Put not your trust in princes: In the children of men, in whom there is no salvation. - Ps. 145:2-3

"For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables." - 2 Timothy 4:3-4
