A RISE and fly
The reeling Faun, the sensual feast;
Move upward working out the beast,
And let the ape and tiger die.
Alfred Tennyson

EVERY man is a tamer of wild beasts, and these wild beasts are his passions. To draw their teeth and claws, to muzzle and tame them, to turn them into servants and domestic animals, fuming perhaps, but submissive—in this consists personal education.
Henri F. Amiel

THERE is no fellowship of honour and baseness in the same breast; and to combine the best and the worst designs is no more possible in one mind, than it is for the same man to be at the same instant virtuous and vicious.
Marcus F. Quintilian
