It is not easy to break bad habits and harder still to give up your own will. But if you do not overcome the little things, how do you expect to overcome the greater? Therefore, resist your evil inclinations at the start and break off bad habits, or little by little they will lead you to greater difficulties.
If only you would think of the great interior peace you would have and how happy you would make others by doing good, you would be more eager to grow in virtue!
Chapter 11 – The Imitation of Christ
