cassianus:

One of the fathers used to say: “When they cover the eyes of the ox, then it turns the mill around; but if they do not cover [them], it does not turn it around. Similarly, if the devil succeeds in covering the eyes of a man, he tumbles him into every sin. But if his eyes are enlightened, he can easily escape from him.”
