    You still think these fit, 300 years later? I don’t know, I’m not a teacher, but I would have picked “Zeal” and “Generosity” from that list, along with a little bit of “Wisdom” and “Vigilance,” but that’s about it.

  2. Really Chris? Why not generosity? Or patience?

    Sorry, I should have said “selected” instead of “picked.” My list would be:
    1. Drive (includes a strange sort of love)
    2. Determination (includes Zeal)
    3. Wisdom (i.e. Skill)
    4. Craft (includes Vigilance)
    5. Generosity (deserved Patience, but not infinite)
