self-denial according to thomas a kempis

"A man often pursues something which he desires; but when he attains it, he begins to be of another mind. For our affections do not stay long on the same object, but rather drive us from one thing to another. Instead, man’s true progress consists in denying himself; and the man of self-denial is free and secure."

Thomas a Kempis
