The worth and excellency of a soul is to be measured by
the object of its love: he who loveth mean and sordid things
doth thereby become base and vile; but a noble
and well placed affection doth advance and improve the spirit
into a conformity with the perfections which it loves.
We must not indulge our inclinations, as we do little children, till they grow weary of the thing they are unwilling to let go. We must not continue our sinful practices in hopes that the divine grace will one day overpower our spirits, and make us hate them for their own deformity.
