Learn to know and deal with your masters

For the whole array of passions, wrath and fear, cowardice and impudence, depression as well as pleasure, hatred, strife and merciless cruelty, envy as well as flattery, brutality together with brooding over injuries, they are all so many despotic masters…

You really, really, really need to clean them up. Don’t be afraid and do it! Okay, if you’re afraid, be afraid and do it anyway!

Based on St Gregory of Nyssa
