Adler number: kappa,2145
Translated headword: orderliness
Vetting Status: high
[Meaning] good organization.[1]
"Orderliness and temperance are not only [means of] avoiding and removing the opposite vices, [i.e.] disorderliness and intemperance, but active and intentional ways of life. And while the former turns what is worse in us toward what is better, the latter marshals and sets in order those things that are passions of the soul; and [sc. they both] bring to birth in the souls of those who approach [them] virtues which are their own offspring".[2]
