Today’s quote:

In order to become soundly virtuous, it is advisable to make good practical resolutions concerning particular acts of the virtues and to be faithful in carrying them out afterwards. Without doing that, one is often virtuous only in one’s imagination.

Vincent de Paul (Volume: 2 | Page#: 217) To Saint Louise

Am I a victim of a “virtuous imagination”?
