Conquest of the Passions.  The man who has overcome his passions has entered into possession of the most fruitful soil, like the colonist who has become lord over bogs and forests.  To sow the seed of spiritual good works on the soil of the vanquished passions is the next and most urgent task.  The conquest itself is a means, not an end: if it be not so regarded, all kind of weeds and devil's crop quickly spring up upon the fertile soil that has been cleared, and soon the growth is all wilder and more luxuriant than before.
