I read Alain de Botton's 10 virtues for the modern age a while back and thought they were a fine replacement for the Catholic doctrine that people like myself had grown up with and mostly abandoned long ago. A set of ongoing goals for everyday behaviour in case we might drift off into an anti-social abyss.
Anyway as cheesy as it might sound i wanted to use the virtues as a chorus, mostly because I thought it would be a great way to remember them.
Empathy, patience, confidence, humour, self-awareness, sacrifice, forgiveness, politeness, resilience and hope. These are 10 virtues for the modern age by Alain de Boton (Thanks Alain for kind permission to sing them!)
