Never… think we have a due knowledge of ourselves till we have been exposed to various kinds of temptations, and tried on every side. Integrity on one side of our character is no voucher for integrity on another. We cannot tell how we should act if brought under temptations different from those we have hitherto experienced.

John Henry Newman (1801-1890) English prelate, Catholic Cardinal, theologian
(Attributed)
