Men are admitted into Heaven not because they have curbed and governed their passions or have no passions, but because they have cultivated their understandings. The treasures of Heaven are not negations of passion, but realities of intellect, from which all the passions emanate uncurbed in their eternal glory. The fool shall not enter into Heaven let him be ever so holy.
Commercials on television are similar to sex and taxes;
the more talk there is about them, the less likely they are to be curbed.
I may neither choose who I would, nor refuse who I dislike;
so is the will of a living daughter curbed by the will of a dead father.
The man or nation of high culture may acknowledge to great lengths the restraints imposed by conventions and honour, but beyond a certain point, primitive will or desire cannot be curbed.
