Modo de vida

"Mildness is the mean concerned with anger. (...) The person who is angry at the right things and toward the right people, and also in the right way, at the right time, and for the right length of time, is praised. This, then, will be the mild person, if mildness is praised. For if mildness is something to be praised, being a mild person means being undisturbed, not led by feeling, but irritated whenever reason prescribes, and for the length of time it prescribes. And he seems to err more in the direction of deficiency, since the mild person is ready to pardon, not eager to exact a penalty."
