The man that only acted by instinct could be very good but would keep his intelligence dormant. He would be like a child who would never leave the walking chair and did not know how to use her limbs. The one that does not dominate his passions may be very intelligent but, at the same time, very evil. Instinct annihilates by itself; the passions can only be dominated by the exercise of will.

Attachment to material things constitutes a notorious sign of inferiority, because the more man is grasped to the assets of this world the less he understands his destiny. By disinterest, on the contrary, man demonstrates that he faces the future from a more elevated stand point.

The duty is the most beautiful laurel of reason; it descends from that as the son from the mother. Man has to love his duty, not because it preserves life from harm, harm to which humanity cannot escape, but because it gives the soul the necessary vigor for its own development.
