St. John of the Cross Quote

“A love of pleasure and attachment to it, usually fires the will toward the enjoyment of things that give pleasure. A more intense enkindling of another, better love is necessary for the vanquishing of the appetites and the denial of this pleasure. By finding satisfaction and strength in this love, it will have the courage and constancy to readily deny all other appetites.”
– Saint John of the Cross
