Aristotle argued that a person could not have an excellent life without being an excellent person.
1) Only an excellent person —a virtuous person— would be able to consistently do those things most conducive to having a good life.
2) Being an excellent person is an essential part of what it would be to have a good life.
3) Only an excellent person can have a truly good life.
If that’s true,
the most successful people in life
flexible, but principled
angered by injustice
defenders of others
need not be the centre of attention
trusting, but not easily fooled
forgiven for all the ways they are not this way
Alright, the last bit is Jesus not Aristotle,
but an absolutely essential addition.
