The Riddle of the Sphinx
The Riddle of the Sphinx
2016

"As far as Tertullian was concerned, a full stomach led to 'an obsession with the lavatory' and nothing else remained 'but to pass on from this to thoughts of lust.'" - Frank Graziano, Wounds of Love

"...for this stinking and filthy passion is the door of all wickedness, and wherever it hath power, like a great, wide door, is it open for the entrance of all abominable things. It is the destroyer of all excellence, it impedeth all righteousness, and it is the obstacle to all divine works in every shape and form."  - Philoxenus, Ascetic Discourse On Gluttony
