82. The good, the intelligent, the true, the healthy, the free and the beautiful;

Versus the stupid, wicked, lie, sick, enslaved and ugly.

It is well known that Plato in ancient Greece, depicted and valued so much the three virtues of Goodness, Truth, and Beauty. We may add to these, intelligence and activities (industry), as they are the very essence of what a  human creature is.

And so seems to believe Sir John Templeton (from his Golden Nuggets)

"If we see the good in every one and everything, and appreciate the beauty that is all around us, a kind of magical transformation begins to work on our lives. It is a law of life that whatever we give attention to, and believe, becomes our experience."
