Your ears are debauched, your eyes commit fornication, your looks commit adultery before you embrace. Oh you that have done violence to man, and have devoted to shame what is divine in this handiwork of God, you disbelieve everything that you may indulge your passions, and that you may believe in idols, because you have a craving after their licentiousness, but disbelieve God, because you cannot bear a life of self-restraint.” Clement of Alexandria, Exhortation to the Heathen, IV, ANF 2:189
