   The authorities also praise humility above other virtues, but I put disinterest above humility for the following reasons.  There can be humility without disinterest but disinterest cannot be perfect without humility; perfect humility depends on self-denial; disinterest comes so near to zero that nothing may intervene.  Thus, there cannot be disinterest without humility and, anyway, two virtues are better than one!

  1. Two virtues are always better than one :)

    Merry Christmas!

    1. Merry Christmas to you also. On my way to New York City with my daughter and her school friend for a lovely annual pre-Christmas dinner called Charles Dickens Night in a romantic fancy velvet-lined subterranean eating club. Caroline's remaining behind, unfortunately, with our ailing daschund. We'll all be together again tomorrow and all the time over New Year's. I'm glad you read this. I really liked it. And Batty Langley's mazes, which say a lot, I think. Curtis
