My Friends,

My good friend L0stf0x has shared a word I have just learned the meaning:

Philotimo ( also spelled filotimo; Greek: φιλότιμο ) is a Greek noun translating to "love of honor". However, philotimo is almost impossible to translate sufficiently as it describes a complex array of virtues.



It is our Philotimo that defines us, you, my friends, that gives us the edge, that makes us world leaders! We are truly light years ahead of all others!

It is you, our Forum Members and all the silent Readers, you are on a path to change the World Forever! We do it with Philotimo!

There is little, if anything, in life that has more value than this word.  I have never encountered it before, but have always valued the principals therein.  Nevertheless, virtue is not something of value in our current society.  It isn't those without eyes that are most blind.

I'm impressed that you posted this Chris.

Great subject! Thank you Chris

Philotimo cannot be expressed by any word or set of words. is something inner, a spiritual force that drives you always to think and do the right thing.

A typical example is my friend Chris that has strong the feeling of philotimo. He made this forum not for his personal profit, but for sharing his valuable knowledge and help others, spending his valuable time trying to do the right thing!

I am sure most of people in this great forum has Philotimo and doesn't know about it  

Because every motivation to share a great idea, or invent things that will make our world better, does not only satisfies our personal learning feeling, it is really an expression of Philotimo with all its meaning.

The great Nikola Tesla:

Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. This idea is not novel. Men have been led to it long ago go by instinct or reason. It has been expressed in many ways, and in many places, in the history of old and new. We find it in the delightful myth of Antheus, who drives power from the earth; we find it among the subtle speculations of one of your splendid mathematicians, and in many hints and statements of thinkers of the present time. Throughout space there is energy. Is this energy static or kinetic? If static, our hopes are in vain; if kinetic - and this we know it is for certain - then it is a mere question of time when men will succeed in attaching their machinery to the very wheelwork of nature.
