learn self-conquest







.



Learn self-conquest, 
persevere thus for a time, 
and you will perceive very clearly the advantage which you gain from it. 
As soon as you apply yourself to contemplation, 
you will at once feel your senses gather themselves together: 
they seem like bees which return to the hive and there 
shut themselves up to work at the making of honey. 


~ Saint Teresa of Avila
