on the importance of self-restraint, even in the face of adversity

'The lover of virtue willingly puts out the fire of sensual pleasure. And if a man has dedicated his intellect to the knowledge of truth, he will not allow unsought sufferings to thwart the ceaseless aspiration that leads him to God.' 
St Maximos the Confessor (AD 480 - 622)
