Outrage and anger

10 July 2020

No matter how insignificant the passions seem, cast them out immediately, completely and without hesitation, so that no trace remains and stays within you. Get rid of them with outrage and anger. Don’t be shocked by this: get angry with them because that’s the way to expel them immediately and drastically. Passions can’t dominate you and harm you unless you harbor a liking for them.
