Evagrius Ponticus Quotes: He Who Has Mastery Over His Incensive

He Who Has Mastery Over His Incensive Power Has Mastery Also Over The Demons. But Anyone Who Is A Slave To It Is A Stranger To The Ways Of The Saviour, For As The Saviour Enjoined Us: 'Learn From Me; For I Am Gentle And Humble In Heart: And You Will Find Rest For Your Souls' (Mt. 11:29). Now If A Man Abstains From Food And Drink, But Becomes Incensed To Wrath Because Of Evil Thoughts, He Is Like A Ship Sailing The Open Sea With A Demon For A Pilot.
