The presence of a guest might persuade our sisters to *moderate their quarrel*.
The quarrel is not between ourselves, it is *within* us. The quarrel is between one's own desires and that which is demanded. The quarrel is between the body and its longings, the soul and its terrors, and the mind - yearning to be free. The quarrel defines us. It drives us forwards, upwards, to our knees in prayer.
