One of the chief purposes in life is to overcome
evil tendencies, to govern appetites, to control
our passions - anger, hatred, jealousy, immorality.
We have to overcome them; we have to subject
them, conquest them because God said: "the
Spirit of the Lord doth not dwell in unholy temples,"
nor will it "...always strive with man..." (2Nephi26:11)
-David O McKay
