Can anyone confirm or deny whether or not Augustine said the following:

Man is tinder, Woman is fire, and the Devil is a mighty wind.

This line appears in a song called Devil is a Mighty Wind on Robin & Linda Williams' CD Rhythm of Love. I heard them perform it live on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion a few years ago and they claimed that the line was from Augustine. In 5 minutes of digging around on the web, I couldn't come up with anything. If anyone can verify this please let me know--with a bibliographic reference if possible. BTW, I was looking around for links on someone's blog, but couldn't find it...what is that literary search engine?
