“Some passions are bodily, other spiritual. Bodily passions have their sources in the body, 
while spiritual ones come from external things. But love and temperance cut out both the one 
and the other: Love cuts out spiritual passions, and temperance bodily ones.”
St. Maximus the Confessor, Chapters on Love
