“As the Sandwich-Islander believes that the strength and valor of the enemy he kills passes into himself, so we gain the strength of the temptations we resist”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
“We gain the strength of the temptation we resist.”
“Do you really think it is weakness that yields to temptation? I tell you that there are terrible temptations which it requires strength, strength and courage to yield to.”
“I can resist everything except temptation.”
“What makes resisting temptation difficult for many people, is that they don't want to discourage it completely.”
“I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it”
“The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it... I can resist everything but temptation.”
