 Aristotle -- General Introduction [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
The prominent virtue of this list is high-mindedness, which, as being a kind of ideal self-respect, is regarded as the crown of all the other virtues, depending on them for its existence, and itself in turn tending to intensify their force.
The list seems to be more a deduction from the formula than a statement of the facts on which the formula itself depends, and Aristotle accordingly finds language frequently inadequate to express the states of excess or defect which his theory involves (for example in dealing with the virtue of ambition).
Throughout the list he insists on the "autonomy of will" as indispensable to virtue: courage for instance is only really worthy of the name when done from a love of honor and duty: munificence again becomes vulgarity when it is not exercised from a love of what is right and beautiful, but for displaying wealth.

 No War on Iran!: Some Questions on Minorities and Majorities   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-07)
If Persian has to be a native language, then I must regretfully inform all of my cousins that most of us are not “Persians.” They will, let me tell you, be shocked, especially after all those years of Persian lessons after elementary school.
If this is the case, most Persian speakers are disqualified from being Persian because they or their families hail from parts of the geographic political entity of Iran that has been identified as non-Persian.
Common occurrences like migration, invasion and reconfiguration are absent from such assumptions that “Persians” have, since arriving in Iran and being forged into a shining people through the glories of ancient empires, never moved since or married any of the people who arrived later or lived there before.
