- An open intelligence: it does not mean to have a special intelligence, but to have the serenity that lets one notice promptly the good aspects of things and to weigh their consequences.
- A firm will: by which one does not make and break good resolutions daily; does not begin a work and put it off; make one resolution and change it.
- Goodness of heart: that is to have fine dispositions.
What Strikes Me Most Today
What strikes me most today is the definition of open intelligence - "the serenity that lets one notice promptly the good aspects of things and to weigh their consequences." I keep rereading this definition. It is an important aspect of our character, and it seems that this is one that would take years of experience to achieve. I think in this case experience is more important than any learning you could get from a book to be able to readily see the good and have a good idea of the consequences of any given situation.
