"Are the pleasures of the body to be sought, which Plato describes, in all seriousness, as “snares, and the source of all ills”? ... The promptings of sensuality are the most strong of all, and so the most hostile to philosophy ... What man in the grip of this, the strongest of emotions, can bend his mind to thought, regain his reason, or, indeed, concentrate on anything?" --Saint Augustine remembering Cicero, cited in Lust (2004) by Simon Blackburn
