“A passion is a contranatural movement of the soul or an irrational love, or a blindfold hatred toward any material thing, or because of it: for example, for food, or for women, or for riches, or for worldly glory, or any other sensible thing; or for the sake of such things, as in a 
senseless hatred for someone on account of the things mentioned above.”
St. Maximos the Confessor, Chapters on Love
