A hermit asked a brother, "Do you often talk with women?"

The brother said, "No," and added, "My temptations come from paintings old and new, memories of mine which trouble me through pictures of women."

The hermit advised him, "Do not fear the dead but flee the living; flee from consenting to sin or commiting sin, and take a longer time over your prayers."
