QUOTATION: The Virtue of Eutrapelia

St. Thomas Aquinas
There can be a virtue about games. The Philosopher gives it the name of wittiness (eutrapelia), and a man is said to be pleasant through having a happy turn of mind, whereby he gives his words and deeds a cheerful turn: and inasmuch as this virtue restrains a man from immoderate fun, it is comprised under modesty.

--St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica
