But perseverance is ~put down as a virtue. 14 2, 109 | that, together with grace, ~perseverance is given to the other infused 15 2, 109 | De Persev. ii): "Why is perseverance besought of God, if it is 16 2, 109 | without His giving it?" Now perseverance is besought by even those 17 2, 109 | possessed of grace, needs perseverance ~to be given to him by God.~ 18 2, 109 | Para. 1/1~I answer that, Perseverance is taken in three ways. 19 2, 109 | what is virtuous. And thus perseverance is to ~sadness as continence 20 2, 109 | Ethic. vii, 7). Secondly, perseverance may be called a ~habit, 21 2, 109 | And in both these ways perseverance is infused together with 22 2, 109 | other virtues are.

Therefore perseverance may come ~under the merit 32 2, 114 | of grace is greater than perseverance in the ~grace we already 33 2, 114 | therefore, may he merit perseverance ~in the grace he has already.~ 34 2, 114 | works, who do not obtain ~perseverance; nor can it be urged that 35 2, 114 | sin itself is opposed to perseverance; and thus ~if anyone were 36 2, 114 | if anyone were to merit perseverance, God would not permit him 37 2, 114 | to fall ~into sin. Hence perseverance does not come under merit.~ 38 2, 114 | ways of obtaining from God perseverance in good: ~first, inasmuch 39 2, 114 | Hence it is clear that the perseverance ~of glory which is the term 40 2, 114 | falls under merit; ~but perseverance of the wayfarer does not 41 2, 114 | freely bestows the good of perseverance, on whomsoever He bestows ~ 42 2, 114 | in prayer the grace ~of perseverance either for ourselves or 43 2, 114 | Para. 1/2~Reply OBJ 2: The perseverance which is in heaven is compared 44 2, 114 | s movement; not so, the perseverance of the wayfarer, for ~the 45 2, 23 | charity. For the gift of ~perseverance is reckoned among the blessings 46 2, 33 | fornication"; by resistance, ~when perseverance in the thought diminishes 47 2, 51 | consists seemingly in a lack of perseverance ~in matters of difficulty. 48 2, 51 | matters of difficulty. But perseverance in difficult matters belongs ~ 49 2, 51 | virtues, ~and accordingly perseverance in good belongs to all moral 50 2, 51 | Reply OBJ 3: Continency and perseverance seem to be not in the ~appetitive 51 2, 51 | sorrow.

Now ~magnificence seems 55 2, 126 | of a special virtue. But perseverance is required in ~every virtue: 56 2, 126 | shall be saved." Therefore perseverance should not be ~accounted 57 2, 126 | magnanimity, manliness, perseverance, magnificence." Therefore 58 2, 126 | this respect he mentions "perseverance," which ~accordingly he 59 2, 126 | 5 Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 5: Perseverance as denoting persistence 60 2, 126 | which he substitutes for perseverance. ~And he adds three, two 61 2, 126 | Constancy may also pertain to ~perseverance, so that one may be called 62 2, 126 | and Macrobius he mentions "perseverance" and ~"magnificence," and 63 2, 127 | Magnificence; ~(3) Patience; (4) Perseverance. As regards the first we 64 2, 135 | 137] Out. Para. 1/1 - OF PERSEVERANCE (FOUR ARTICLES)~We must 65 2, 135 | ARTICLES)~We must now consider perseverance and the vices opposed to 66 2, 135 | to it. Under the ~head of perseverance there are four points of 67 2, 135 | of inquiry:~(1) Whether perseverance is a virtue?~(2) Whether 68 2, 135 | Thes. Para. 1/1~Whether perseverance is a virtue?~Aquin.: SMT 69 2, 135 | 1/1~OBJ 1: It seems that perseverance is not a virtue. For, according 70 2, 135 | continency is greater than perseverance. But ~continency is not 71 2, 135 | Ethic. iv, 9. Therefore ~perseverance is not a virtue.~Aquin.: 72 2, 135 | one can be said to have perseverance while living, unless he 73 2, 135 | until death. Therefore perseverance is not a virtue.~Aquin.: 74 2, 135 | is what we understand by perseverance: for Tully says (De Invent. ~ 75 2, 135 | Invent. ~Rhet. ii) that "perseverance is the fixed and continued 76 2, 135 | well-considered purpose." Therefore perseverance is not a special virtue, ~ 77 2, 135 | De Affect.] says that ~"perseverance is a habit regarding things 78 2, 135 | is a virtue. Therefore perseverance is a virtue.~Aquin.: SMT 79 2, 135 | difficult in ~itself), so perseverance is a special virtue, since 80 2, 135 | The Philosopher is taking perseverance there, as it is ~found in 81 2, 135 | not on this ~account that perseverance has its chief title to praise. 82 2, 135 | passions. ~Wherefore if perseverance be taken in this sense it 83 2, 135 | other ~hand, if we take perseverance as denoting long persistence 84 2, 135 | good. Wherefore such like perseverance may be a virtue, ~because 85 2, 135 | must ~reply that the term "perseverance" is sometimes used to denote 86 2, 135 | one who has the habit of perseverance chooses to persevere ~and 87 2, 135 | Properly speaking it belongs to perseverance to persevere to the end 88 2, 135 | principal virtues, the act of perseverance is not accomplished until 89 2, 135 | that Augustine speaks of perseverance as ~denoting the consummate 90 2, 135 | denoting the consummate act of perseverance.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[137] A[ 91 2, 135 | a special virtue called perseverance, which intends this as ~ 92 2, 135 | Thes.

Therefore perseverance ~is a part of temperance 96 2, 135 | that virtue moderates. Now perseverance does not imply moderation ~ 97 2, 135 | Therefore it ~seems that perseverance is a part not of a moral 98 2, 135 | i) that no one can lose ~perseverance; whereas one can lose the 99 2, 135 | other virtues. Therefore ~perseverance is greater than all the 100 2, 135 | than its part. Therefore perseverance is not a part of ~a virtue, 101 2, 135 | Invent. Rhet. ii) reckons perseverance as a ~part of fortitude.~ 102 2, 135 | accomplishing a good work gives ~perseverance its claim to praise: nor 103 2, 135 | dangers of death. Therefore perseverance is annexed to fortitude, 104 2, 135 | although, as to matter, perseverance seems to have more in common 105 2, 135 | Para. 1/1~Reply OBJ 2: The perseverance of which the Philosopher 106 2, 135 | of reason and will. But perseverance, considered as a ~virtue, 107 2, 135 | Augustine speaks there of perseverance, as denoting, not a ~virtuous 108 2, 135 | incompatible with such like perseverance for it to be lost, since 109 2, 135 | Whether constancy pertains to perseverance?~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[137] A[ 110 2, 135 | constancy does not pertain to perseverance. For ~constancy pertains 111 2, 135 | and ~patience differs from perseverance. Therefore constancy does 112 2, 135 | constancy does not pertain ~to perseverance.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[137] A[ 113 2, 135 | magnificence rather than to perseverance.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[137] A[ 114 2, 135 | if constancy pertained to perseverance, it would seem ~nowise to 115 2, 135 | firmness by which he indicates perseverance, as stated above (Q[128]~, 116 2, 135 | constancy does not pertain to perseverance.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[137] A[ 117 2, 135 | thing. Now it belongs to perseverance to stand to certain things, 118 2, 135 | Therefore constancy ~belongs to perseverance.~Aquin.: SMT SS Q[137] A[ 119 2, 135 | Para. 1/1~I answer that, Perseverance and constancy agree as to 120 2, 135 | Because the ~virtue of perseverance properly makes man persist 121 2, 135 | external hindrances. Hence perseverance takes precedence ~of constancy 122 2, 135 | Hence constancy agrees with perseverance as to end: while ~it agrees 123 2, 135 | wherefore constancy pertains to perseverance ~rather than to patience.~ 124 2, 135 | its very continuance which perseverance regards. ~Hence constancy 125 2, 135 | 3: Constancy pertains to perseverance in so far as it has ~something 126 2, 135 | Thes. Para. 1/1~Whether perseverance needs the help of grace? [* 127 2, 135 | 1/1~OBJ 1: It seems that perseverance does not need the help of 128 2, 135 | the help of grace. For ~perseverance is a virtue, as stated above ( 129 2, 135 | inclination of virtue suffices for perseverance. Therefore this ~does not 130 2, 135 | Persev. i): "We hold that ~perseverance is a gift of God, whereby 131 2, 135 | A[1], ad 2; A[2], ad 3), perseverance ~has a twofold signification. 132 2, 135 | it denotes the habit of perseverance, ~considered as a virtue. 133 2, 135 | taken to denote ~the act of perseverance enduring until death: and 134 2, 135 | Reply OBJ 1: The virtue of perseverance, so far as it is concerned, ~ 135 2, 135 | in human nature to make ~perseverance difficult. Now, however, 136 2, 135 | possibility of persevering, but ~perseverance itself. Wherefore the first 137 2, 136 | OF THE VICES OPPOSED TO PERSEVERANCE (TWO ARTICLES)~We must now 138 2, 136 | consider the vices opposed to perseverance; under which head ~there 139 2, 136 | effeminacy* is opposed to perseverance?
