'Temperance is another cardinal virtue; we can be temperate in the use of our imagination, by not letting it gallop as fast as it would wish; we can be temperate with our eyes, temperate with our mouth -- some people constantly have something sweet and pleasant in their mouth; we can be temperate with our ears, not allowing them to listen to useless songs and conversation; temperate in smelling -- some people perfume themselves to such a degree as to make those about them sick; temperate with the hands -- some people are always washing them when it is hot, and handling things that are soft to the touch. . . In short we can practice temperance with our whole body, this poor machine, by not letting it run always like a horse without bit or bridle, but checking it and keeping it down. Some people lie buried there, in their beds; . . . some are glad not to sleep, that they may the better feel how comfortable they are. The saints are not like that.'
