On Knowledge and Desire

Posted by Remy on March 19, 2011

“We cannot know God without knowing self, cannot know self without knowing God, and cannot know either without encountering God in His good creation.”

“We need to recognize that any renunciation, any check on or discipline of desire, is for the sake of a more complete satisfaction of desire. Suppression of desire can only pervert desire. Desire is “disciplined” by desire, desire for things now channeled by overwhelming desire for better things later.”

-PJ Leithart
