Quotes & Themes – Chastity


We term chastity as honesty and the profession of honor. It is called integrity and its opposite corruption. In short, it has its own glory all apart to be the beautiful and fair virtue of the soul and body. (Introduction to the Devout Life, Part III, Chapter 12)

Avoiding anger is easier than regulating it. Even so, it is easier to keep oneself away from carnal pleasures than to keep moderation in them. (Introduction to the Devout Life, Part III, Chapter 12).

Chastity depends on the heart for its source and on the body as its subject. Hence it may be lost by all the external senses of the body and by the thoughts and desires of the heart. (Introduction to the Devout Life, Part III, Chapter 13).
