Much thanks to everyone for being civil and clarifying.
I teach my students that the reason we talk about 'practicing virtues' is that they take practice--they don't come naturally. Plato's four cardinal virtues are courage, temperance, justice, and prudence. Courage, I think we all understand--it's about standing up when you would much rather sit down. Temperance is about "habitual moderation in the indulgence of a natural appetite or passion"--it's about having one beer in the evening, and no more. Justice is about rightness--for me, it's about "the proper allocation of things--wealth, power, reward, respect--among...people". Finally, prudence is about sound judgement and wisdom--an awareness and acceptance of your limitations. We need to practice those virtues here, with the three theological virtues of faith, hope, and probably most importantly here, charity.
