I was just reading an interesting anthropological-philo text from the 17th century. I found a few words of wisdom:
"The very impulses that are blamed as the causes of vice are good in themselves, fulfilling their function as abilities implanted by nature."
Most of the time, on this forum, we talk about our simple impulses as leading us astray, as something that is bad, causing us to cave. Really, they shouldn't be blamed or thought of as vices. In fact, they are there to keep us alive.
They are there because we need them.
I'm not sure why I am posting this - just thought it was a refreshing thought.
