avoiding what it craved

"The soul that dies by craving lives by avoiding what it craved. [Restrain] yourselves from the monstrous savagery of pride, from the luxurious inertia of self-indulgence, and from sham pretension to knowledge..."

[Augustine, Confessions, Book XIII, Section 21, 26. "Day Six: Animals, the "living soul"]
