When Cyrus of Alexandria was asked about the temptation of lust, he said, "If you are not tempted, it is because you are sinning. The man who does not fight sin at the stage of temptation is sinning already in his body. The man who is sinning in his flesh has no trouble from temptation."

~~Love and Lust by Simeon Solomon (b. October 9, 1840 in London – d. August 14, 1905 in St. Giles's Workhouse). Solomon, an English Pre-Raphaelite painter, was the youngest of eight siblings, two of whom were also painters as was his mother.
