Lust comes from our animal nature attacking our human intelligence. When one surrenders to these animalistic desires one then loses his intellect to the animal within. This animal then fulfills its appetite and so loses its vigor. This is when we salvage our perception from the rested animal, with a sense of grief from a battle just lost, but the inner war does rage on. The animal will again awaken with an appetite, and your only counter is to keep the animal weak from starvation, by not feeding it your humanity.
Allen Blanks

Self-respect cannot be hunted. It cannot be purchased. It is never for sale. It comes to us when we are alone, in quiet moments, in quiet places, when we suddenly realize that, knowing the good, we have done it, knowing the beautiful, we have served it; knowing the truth, we have spoken it.
