From Our Exchanges

[The Christian Register]

Virtue and vice are separated by habit. One who has practised continence and temperance on all occasions, great and small, is armed against all forms of temptation. Men and women who are trustworthy and secure in their virtue are so not because, as foolish people think, they have none of the impulses and passions which in other men and women expose themselves to view in outbreaking sins; because these powerful impulses furnish the motive power of high-minded activity, they may even be exceptionally endowed with such human attributes. Many good people, good so far as intention goes, are caught in some whirlwind of sudden temptation and give way to that which in their saner moments they despise, simply because they have practised no vigorous self-discipline.
