Then after in the Discovery Zone they reflect on their lives, their behaviour and they learn how to identify and apply these gems in everyday situations in order to make choices that are beneficial to them and to others. The children are given gems to remind them of the good human qualities that they have demonstrated during the sessions and these are then followed up by the class teacher and duly celebrated by other staff. By discovering and nurturing their gems of inestimable value this leads to improvements in self worth, motivation to learn and behave and an increased desire to make a positive contribution to society.

Such Good Human Qualities As Openness..

All the other good human qualities are related to this basic quality

The way that I see it, some of the obvious benefits when you start homeschooling are that you are in full control of your children's education in developing their good human qualities - like stimulating their inborn sense curiosity, fuelling their love for questioning, and not to forget - empowering them to follow and live out their personal ideas, interests and passions without the pressure of their constantly being externally evaluated and judged - something which most traditional school systems tend to do unfortunately.

So, it's a sign of good human qualities.

"Let us reflect on what is truly of value in life, what gives meaningto our lives, and set our priorities on the basis of that. The purposeof our life needs to be positive. We weren't born with the purpose of causingtrouble, harming others. For our life to be of value, I think we must developbasic good human qualities -- warmth, kindness, compassion. Then our lifebecomes meaningful and more peaceful -- happier." [page 64]

Virtues are objectively good human qualities—good for us whether we know it or not
All that is necessary is for each of us to develop our good human qualities

Optimism is at the heart of a successful human being

When a Christian fights to acquire these virtues, his soul is preparing to receive the grace of the Holy Spirit fruitfully. In this way his good human qualities are strengthened by the motions of the Paraclete in his soul. The Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, the soul's sweet guest, pours out his gifts: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety and the fear of the Lord.

Then one experiences joy and peace, a joyous peace, an interior rejoicing that goes hand in hand with the human virtue of cheerfulness. At the very moment when everything seems to be collapsing before our eyes, we realise that quite the opposite is true, 'because you, Lord, are my strength'. If God is dwelling in our soul, everything else, no matter how important it may seem, is accidental and transitory, whereas we, in God, stand permanent and firm.

Through the gift of piety, the Holy Spirit helps us to realise with certainty that we are children of God. And, being children of God, how can we be sad? Sadness is the end product of selfishness. If we truly want to live for God, we will never lack cheerfulness, even when we discover our errors and wretchedness. Cheerfulness finds its way into our life of prayer, so much so that we cannot help singing for joy. For we are in love, and singing is a thing that lovers do.

These are the six qualities that make us fully human: 1

I might be able to clarify some things about this issue. Many conspiracy theorists jump to conclusions about Plato and some of his ideas that I feel is misguided. First, let me explain the difference between an idea and how an idea is used. The idea behind eugenics, or any selective breeding program, is to improve the human condition. If there's a way to reduce bad human qualities and increase good human qualities, then why should that--in itself--be a bad thing? If A is good and B is good, then AB is good. It's simple logic. Okay, now that we understand that an idea can be a good thing, what about HOW an idea is used? What about WHO is using that idea? You see, this is where you have to draw the line because this is where Plato would explain things. Plato believed in integrity and believed that only a philosopher-king, a person with integrity, could rule a society best. The idea of DNA manipulation to improve the human condition is a good idea, but Plato would probably have a hard time believing that our current governmental systems contain the integrity to wield that idea responsibly and in the best interests of the people. Conclusively, then, Plato is for eugenics so long as eugenics is used ethically and responsibly, something only a philosopher-king can do (and Bill Gates, Obama, Al Gore, etc, are NOT philosopher-kings). This is the distinction conspiracy advocates fail to understand, which is sad because Plato was a great philosopher.

Speaking of which, I wasn’t surprised recently to see a poll rating compassion number one in a list of good human qualities, head and shoulders above all others. As I feared, honesty lay close to the bottom, unglamorous and unnoticed. It made me frown. Honesty provides the mental clarity without which compassion is profoundly incomplete.
