A virtue, as defined by Aristotle is a trait of character evident in habitual deeds, that is possessed by any person and is good. Habitual is crucial since it reflects an unalterable character and not one that occurs on occasions (Rachels & Rachels, 2012, p. 177). To effectively uphold virtues humans must uphold the courage to choose between extreme vices, generosity to disburse to assist others, honesty to always tell the truth, and allegiance to friends and family through love and affection and devotion. Conversely, vices are habitual deeds perceived as always wrong when possessed by a person and are always in excess or deficiency of virtues that are always their mean.
