 Quoting: Lies & Alibis


They easily can be. Try to have your virtue win over your vice. :D

There is balance, but do you really want your vice equal with your virtue? Saying this while knowing that balance is key.

Re: Vice & Virtue
"According to tradition, when the Creator placed Adam and Eve in their earthly paradise, he entrusted Adam with the care of animals and Eve with the care of vegetation. This is why Eve, living among flowers, eventually herself gave off a scent of flowers. But at the time of the first sin, she lost this power. Before the fall, she emanated all kinds of delightful perfumes, because she possessed the qualities and virtues that manifest on the physical plane as fragrances. In fact, all psychic phenomena correspond to something in the physical world: a fragrance is the physical expression of a virtue, a nauseous odour the physical expression of a vice."

Greetings, friend...Thank you for the feedback!

If it is complimentary, I believe it is not a matter of replacing the other, but finding the synergistic balance where the vice and virtue exist in harmonic equilibrium with one another.

Not a replacement.

There is inherent good in all. It's all but a matter of perception/perspective and how you choose to see it.hf

Christ.

That is a fucked up picture.
And the LORD spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin, then shalt thou count to three, no more, no less. Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it." Amen.

Re: Vice & Virtue
"It still remains true that no justification of virtue will enable a man to be virtuous. Without the aid of trained emotions the intellect is powerless against the animal organism. I had sooner play cards against a man who was quite sceptical about ethics, but bred to believe that ‘a gentleman does not cheat’, than against an irreproachable moral philosopher who had been brought up among sharpers. In battle it is not syllogisms (logical arguments) that will keep the reluctant nerves and muscles to their post in the third hour of the bombardment. The crudest sentimentalism … about a flag or a country or a regiment will be of more use. We were told it all long ago by Plato. As the king governs by his executive, so Reason in man must rule the mere appetites by means of the ‘spirited element’. The head rules the belly through the chest—the seat, as Alanus tells us, of Magnanimity, of emotions organized by trained habit into stable sentiments. The Chest-Magnanimity-Sentiment—these are the indispensable liaison officers between cerebral man and visceral man. It may even be said that it is by this middle element that man is man: for by his intellect he is mere spirit and by his appetite mere animal. The operation of The Green Book and its kind is to produce what may be called Men without Chests. … A persevering devotion to truth, a nice sense of intellectual honour, cannot be long maintained without the aid of a sentiment... It is not excess of thought but defect of fertile and generous emotion that marks them out. Their heads are no bigger than the ordinary: it is the atrophy of the chest beneath that makes them seem so.

And all the time—such is the tragi-comedy of our situation—we continue to clamour for those very qualities we are rendering impossible. You can hardly open a periodical without coming across the statement that what our civilization needs is more ‘drive’, or dynamism, or self-sacrifice, or ‘creativity’. In a sort of ghastly simplicity we remove the organ and demand the function. We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honour and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.
