We like slipping, but not falling: our real desire is to be tempted enough.

When a man resists sin on human motives only, he will not hold out long.

When devils will their blackest sins put on, they do suggest at first with heavenly shows.

When I cannot be forced, I am fooled out of my integrity. He cannot constrain if I do not consent. If I do but keep possession, all the posse of hell cannot violently eject me; but I am cast out when I cowardly surrender to his summons. Thus there needs no more to be my undoing but myself.
