'He that can apprehend and consider vice with all her baits and seeming pleasures, and yet abstain, and yet distinguish, and yet prefer that which is truly better, he is the true wayfaring Christian. I cannot praise a fugitive and cloistered virtue, unexercised and unbreatehed, that never sallies out and sees her adversary, but slinks out of the race.' 
John Milton in Christine A Colon & Bonnie E Field, Singled Out: Why Celibacy MustBe Reinvented in Today's Church, p.108.
