To deny oneself means

Saint Innocent of Alaska (+1879)

Saint Innocent of Alaska:

“To deny oneself means to give up one’s bad habits; to root out of the heart all that ties us to the world; not to cherish bad thoughts or desires; to suppress every evil thought; not to desire to do anything out of self love, but to do everything out of love for God”.
