Welcome to Virtues for Life, a website designed to inspire and coach you in the daily practice of virtues to help you become your personal best. Our vision is to create a global consciousness in the difference the practice of virtues can make in everyday life.

As a personal virtue, justice is a character trait that we practice, not something that we demand others to do. Where others have harmed us we seek to mend and repair by practicing another virtue, which is forgiveness.

In practicing justice, we make amends because we owe them to those we have harmed, not just to relieve our guilt, regret, or remorse. Though these emotions may initially move us to right.

The Author. At the beginning of Book II, Aristotle distinguishes between moral virtues, which we learn through habit and practice, and intellectual virtues, which we learn through instruction. Books II to V deal with the moral virtues. Book VI turns to intellectual virtues.

Book 2, Chapter 1. Aristotle outlines two sorts of virtue —virtue of thought and virtue of character. The first arises mostly from teaching and requires experience and.

We learn intellectual virtues by instruction, and we learn moral virtues by habit and constant practice. We are all born with the potential to be morally virtuous, but it is only by behaving in the right way that we train ourselves to be virtuous.

As a musician learns to play an instrument, we learn virtue by practicing, not by thinking about it. Solomon in the book of Wisdom says, "And if anyone loves righteousness, her labors are virtues; for she teaches self-control and prudence, justice and courage; nothing in life is more profitable for mortals than these."
