The Seven Deadly Sins.
Of the Seven Deadly Sins, wrath is possibly the most fun. To lick your wounds, to smack your lips over grievances long past, to roll over your tongue the prospect of bitter confrontations still to come, to savor to the last toothsome morsel both the pain you are given and the pain you are giving back–in many ways it is a feast fit for a king.The chief drawback is that what you are wolfing down is yourself.The skeleton at the feast is.... you.
Lust is the mother of the sins, and the seemingly most committed. I can not explain to you the exact meaning nor can I write something wise about the sin, so instead I give you a quote that helped me know more.
“I wasn't in love with her. And she didn't love me. For me the question of love was irrelevant. What I sought was the sense of being tossed about by some raging, savage force, in the midst of which lay something absolutely crucial. I had no idea what that was. But I wanted to thrust my hand right inside her body and touch it, whatever it was.” ~Haruki Marukami.
When you allow your doubts as well as your disappointments to take over you life, and you give up on everything you worked so hard for, to the point where you let your soul fall into a depression and your body to lay there doing nothing with no will to ever do so again, you get the sin sloth.
Pride is the parent of destruction, the eater of minds, hearts, and souls. You can build your tower out of only the best thoughts of yourself, but Pride will be the wrecking ball that knocks it all down.
Jealousy is both reasonable and belongs to reasonable men, while envy is base and belongs to the base, for the one makes himself get good things by jealousy, while the other does not allow his neighbour to have them through envy.
GLuttony kills more than the sword, for wine has drowned more than the sea. Gluttony can not be more well decribed than by Edund spenser's wise words.
“And by his side rode loathsome gluttony. Deform'd creature, on a filthy swine; His belly was up-blown with luxury, And eke with fatness swollen were his eyne.”
Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction. There is enough in the world for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed.
