The Benjamin Franklin Virtues - 1. Temperance

The best definition I found on Temperance was on Wikipedia. See below:

Temperance is generally defined by control over excess, so that it has many such classes, such as abstinence, chastity, modesty, humility, prudence, self-regulation, forgiveness and mercy; each of these involves restraining some impulse, such as sexual desire, vanity, or anger.

Webster defines Temperance as "1: moderation in action, thought, or feeling: Restrain"
