Pleasures of Sin

“Pride inflates man;
Envy consumes him;
Avarice makes him restless;
Anger rekindles his passions;
Gluttony makes him ill;
Comfort destroys him;
Lies imprison him;
Murder defiles him...
The very pleasures of sin become instruments of punishment in the hands of God.”

Pope Innocent III
