DISCERNING THE DIFFERENT MOTIONS OF NATURE AND GRACE:

11. “Nature inclines to creatures, to her own flesh, to vanities, and to gadding abroad: But grace draws to God and to virtue, renounces creatures, flies the world, hates the desires of the flesh, restrains wandering about, and is ashamed to appear in public.”

12. “Nature willingly received exterior comfort, in which she may be sensibly delighted,: But grace seeks to be comforted in God alone, and beyond all things visible to be delighted in the Sovereign Good.”
