The cardinal virtues of Greek philosophy and their benefits

Whenever we lie, cheat, steal, take the easy way out, or ignore others in need, life is immediately easier for us. But after a while, these things weigh on our consciences.

If you choose the virtuous path in each of these situations, you live without regret, with purity, and with good intentions. There is nothing freer than that.

These virtues are regarded by many different philosophers to be the basis for living a good and righteous life:

  • Temperance
  • Fortitude
  • Prudence
  • Justice
