“Our life during this earthly pilgrimage cannot be without temptations, for we make progress along life’s path precisely through our fight against temptations; nobody can know himself unless he has experienced temptation, nor can he be crowned if he has not been victorious, nor can he be victorious if he has not fought, nor can he fight if he has not enemies and temptations.” (Saint Augustine, Enarrationes in Psalmos)
