1 Corinthians 9:24-27
Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things.

And he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city.

And desperately wicked;
Who can know it?
