A quick quote for the dieters out there…

7 Jul

A little something from the book I’m reading (not about dieting).

“Wise temperance of the stomach is a door to all the virtues.  Restrain the stomach, and you will enter Paradise.  But if you please and pamper your stomach, you will hurl yourself over the precipice of bodily impurity, into the fire of wrath and fury, you will coarsen and darken your mind, and in this way you will ruin your powers of attention and self-control, your sobriety and vigilance.”– Russian Bishop Ignatius Brianchaninov

Hmmm…maybe I oughn’t have eaten that second cookie….
