Control Your Hunger

A brother felt hungry at dawn, and struggled not to eat till nine o'clock. When nine o'clock came, he made himself wait till noon. At noon, he dipped his bread and sat down to eat, but then got up again, saying, "I will wait till three." At three o'clock he prayed, and saw the devil's work going out of him like smoke; and his hunger ceased.
