The virtues

Many are the human virtues, and I am happy to see them embodied out in the world, demonstrated by real live human beings. Generosity impresses me greatly. Courage is inspiring. Humility has a kind of lovely power to it, as does integrity. We can always use more of those virtues out there in the world. Persistence and compassion have their places and used judiciously can be lovely. I enjoy when people have a strong sense of justice. Temperance comes in handy, and, though it can be hard to see, wisdom is one of the most beautiful of the virtues. However, if I had to pick one favorite virtue to find out in the general public I guess it would have to be "laughing at my jokes".


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
