The Main Strand of Greatness

Magnanimity is loftiness of character or action. It is that elevation or dignity of soul which raises the possessor above revenge and makes him delight in acts of benevolence. Which makes him disdain injustice and meanness and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects .  A man of magnanimity is elevated in sentiment, scorns temptations, what is mean and base and despises  earthly pomp and splendour.
