    im sure you have plenty of virtues nessyfencer! the fact that you don't think you have any is probably a virtue in itself lol.

    Love, in a relationship I put the other person first. And i'd not get into a relationship where I didn't think i'd not be able to give them what they need/deserve.

    Depends what you mean "life".

    For example I've read of women (& men) who didn't abstain from lust but "played the field" and ended up with little self worth, abortions, children in care, STD & mis-trust, while others looked for a man/woman who they could love & be loved by, the result was love & a happy family.

    Should of just cut and pasted the Catholic churches condoned virtues from the sins thread, after all they invented both the sins and the virtues, they are the authority.

    Anyway I'm going to assume you meant chastity not love as that's covered by kindness and to some extent some of the others anyway really.

    • Chastity
    • Abstinence
    • Liberality
    • Diligence
    • Patience
    • Kindness
    • Humility


    None of them regularly but all of them at some time. I'll tick off the ones I like to at least maintain a continued flirtation with.

    I think they invented the "7 deadly sins" list, but not the sins & virtues, they always existed.

    Anyone who said they were humble have contradicted themselves by arrogantly admitting it. ;yes;

    Yes I obviously meant they invented sin and virtue? Thanks for clearing that up I'm sure everyone thought I was making improper allegations :rolleyes:

    Have role models ever inspired you to virtue ?

    If so, which and who?

    I'd say forbearance. I am, though I say so myself, the epitome of calm reason. :rolleyes:
