medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

Dear List Members,

I am trying to find out whether a quotation belongs to Augustine of Hippo or
not.
It says something like:
"One of the thieves was saved, do not despair; one of the thieves was
damned, do not presume."  (it is not exact, I'm sorry).
It appears in S Beckett's Waiting for Godot and it was Beckett himself who
attributed it to Augustine, but I can't find out the original quotation.
Does any of you know where it comes from? I'll appreciate your help.

Very best,
Christina
