Enchiridion. Chapter 7. Of Three Parts of Man, the Spirit, the Soul, and the Flesh

The most part of men through proneness of nature and some special property, either rejoice in, or abhor certain things. Some there be whom bodily lust tickleth not at all: let not them by and by ascribe that unto virtue which is an indifferent thing, for not to lack bodily lust, but to overcome bodily lust is the office of virtue.

By Erasmus of Rotterdam
