About Renounce

"Those who devote themselves to the study of wisdom must live in such a way that they abstain from erotic matters, from the pleasures of gluttony, from the debauchery of the body, from idle recreations, from defamation and envy, from wishing to be honored, and from the desire of power. Be aware that love of money is like a poison for all your hope. Never act hastily. [...] Do not hate anyone; do not wish to eradicate all evil. […] Avoid friendships with all concern, do not lose your time with the proud and in no way be like them; live an orderly life and in harmony, serve God, think of Him, seek Faith, Hope and Charity. Wish for a good mind and a quiet life for yourself and for all others.

Saint Augustine, Order
