Eleven Soul Diseases

Pride is the swelling of the soul, lust is the fever, error the gangrene, unbelief the plague of the heart, hypocrisy the scurvy, hardness of heart the stone, anger the frenzy, malice the wolf in the breast, covetousness the dropsy, spiritual sloth the green sickness, apostasy the epilepsy; here are eleven soul diseases and when they come to the full height they are dangerous, and most frequently prove mortal.
