Temperanza – Temperance
This series of works is inspired by the four Cardinal Virtues.Temperance has been described as a virtue particularly used in the positive psychology movement. In fact, it is typically described in terms of what an individual voluntarily refrains from doing. Temperance is generally defined by control over excess. It is defined as moderation or voluntary self-restraint. Confucius encouraged modesty and self-control for the humane life. In the Analects, speaks of those who “choose to live simply, refrain from self-aggrandizing boasts or extravagance, and place hard work before reward” as virtuous.
