Controlling desires


"A person's physicality will never cease to rule him and to incline him toward its purposes, but if a person develops his wisdom and learning and strengthens this aspect of his persona, then he will become strong enough to conquer his nature and not release the reins of his desires from his hand, and he will empower himself to walk in the paths set by his mind."

(Rabbi Moshe Chaim Luzzato, Path of Gd, I 4:2)

Have a great day,
