Several years later I had three sons with various special needs and knew they would probably never grow up to have careers or raise families, but I hoped they would have the same three qualities.
I recently learned Aristotle had said to be persuasive people need ethos (integrity,) pathos (compassion) and logos (intelligence.)
The Bible verse, Micah 6:8 says, "...what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"(King James Version.) Justice requires integrity and mercy requires compassion, but what about common sense? We tend to think of humility as thinking badly of ourselves, but the original meaning was to know one's place. Knowing our place in relation to God (We're not the center of the universe.) is obviously common sense.
Although I can't offer quotations, I understand other religions also have lists of three important qualities people should have that can be translated to mean the same three things; integrity, compassion, and common sense..
Even if we don't succeed at the things our society values like getting fame and fortune, if we have those three qualities we're successful human beings.
