Stoic Question #2

What qualities make a person good?

Now we are getting a little more specific. I could list many qualities of course, truth-telling, integrity, consistency, and many others. In my mind, this comes down to harm, or rather doing no harm. If the words you live by and the actions you take are always intended to be in the best interest of others and do no harm either intentionally or unintentionally, it can be said you are a good person. Of course, there is always the chance that unintentional harm can occur. To be practical, all steps necessary to avoid that result must be taken before deciding on a course of action.
