Lust

Lust, or lechery (latin "luxuria") is an intense desire. Lust could be exemplified by the intense desire of money, food, fame, power or sex.
In Dante's Purgatorio, the penitent walks within flames to purge himself of lustful thoughts and feelings. In Dante's Inferno, unforgiven souls of the sin of lust are blown about in restless hurricane-like winds symbolic of their own lack of self-control to their lustful passions in earthly life.
