This tradition of disciplined, rational, critical thought should not be hastily set aside. Generally UK spelling preference is followed on this website, although ize spellings are also used, chiefly for internet search reasons.

The honest person tries to return the wallet because he or she is honest. Optimally, you will identify your problems, as in chapter 2, but also decide on lofty goals that are worthy of your life. Smith saw prudence as a personal virtue, and thought markets were good at teaching it but unfit to substitute for it.
