Ben’s Thirteen Virtuses

Ben’s Thirteen Virtuses

  1. Temperance- Eat not to dullness; drink not to elevation.

  2. Silence- speak not but what may benefit others or yourself; avoid trifling conversation.

  3. Order- Let all your things have their places; let each part of your business have its time.

  4. Resolution- Resolve to perform what you ought; perform without fail what you resolve

  5. Frugaility- Make no expenses but to do good to others or yourself; i.e., waste nothing.

  6. Industry- Lose no time; be always employed in something useful; cut off all unnecessary actions.

  7. Sincerity – Use no hurtful deceit; think innocently and justly, and, if you speak, speak accordingly.

  8. Justice -Wrong none by doing injuries, or omitting the benefits that are your duty.

  9. Moderation -Avoid extremes; forbear resenting injuries so much as you think they deserve.

  10. Cleanliness – Tolerate no uncleanliness in body, clothes, or habitation.

  11. Tranquility -Be not disturbed at trifles, or at accidents common or unavoidable.

  12. Chastity -Rarely use venery but for health or offspring, never to dullness, weakness, or the injury of your own or another’s peace or reputation.

  13. Humility – Imitate Jesus and Socrates.
