QUOTATION: Crush the Will

St. Peter Julian
That will of the old man must be mortified. It is always trying to rebel. Crush it. It is always saying: « It is enough », or else, « After awhile » Take hold of that will, and pitilessly immolate it at every moment. Contradict it in everything that it wants to do. Here it is that a man must hate his soul to possess it, and lose it to gain it.

--St. Peter Julian Eymard
