"A virtue Catherine, is a kind of energy. It is directly bonded with our thoughts and our actions. Actually, virtue is the governor and thoughts/actions are the citizens.
Virtues can also be considered as relatives of our insticts and our physical body (the carrier of our DNA). Our educational system doesn't know anything about virtues and so they are not used. They can't analyze it any further. This is the main reason why our societies move forward at a very slow pace. But every single situation you have been into, can be analyzed and resolved through virtues.
Knowing, controlling and perfecting one's virtues is just the beginning of one of the Delphic Maxims, "Know thyself."
And guess who's the winner in such a case?"
