Wasted time...

Concerning inordinate affections, continued

"If they give in to themselves, then they suffer remorse of conscience because they have yielded to temptation and do not find the peace of mind they desired.  We find our peace only by resisting our passions, not by giving in to them.  

Peace is at the heart of the devout and fervent, not in those who are carnal and give themselves to outward things."

The Imitation of Christ, Chapter One, Book Six
