Virtue

Montaigne once said that virtue acquired was no match for virtue inborn. Well, if virtue is taken as flatly as it is found in Plato’s dialogues, where the skill of each artisan is his virtue, it might be especially true in case of physical beauty. Whatever has not been said about it, and will continue to be said! On the other hand, if we come to the conduct of man, there is probably nothing as dangerous as much that is inborn. A man, a personality often wins over many well meaning (perhaps, not so well-reflecting) people to much vice and crudity if it is acted out with a certain charm. Hence, even the likes of Saddam do not cease fascinating many among us.
