government. They will lead a sort of monastic life, dwelling in tents rather than houses, taking their meals at a Commons board, being supported at public expense in return for their services; and thus freed from the temptation of money-getting, they will not be hateful tyrants, but allies of the rest of the citizens.
In forming the happy State the object is not to make a few of the people within it happy, but to seek the happiness of the whole. To this end our guardians will have to exercise constant vigilance, so that the twin evils of society, riches and poverty, may never elude their watch and creep into the State ; for the one is the author of luxury and idleness and innovation, and the other of meanness and evil behavior as well as innovation. Remember ! It would be no wonder if our guardians, as well as others, even in their present condition, were very happy; for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. To secure the happiness of the artisan, the happy mean between the two extremes, he must neither be unable on account of poverty to provide himself with tools, nor must he by reason of his wealth be relieved from the necessity of labor.
From the threefold division of the State thus organized it appears that wisdom is the distinctive virtue of the guardians or magistrates, and courage

age is the special virtue of the auxiliaries or warriors, while temperance is a principle of restraint not limited to one particular class, but pervading all three, while justice, upon which the successful exercise of the other virtues depends, is the principle that compels every man to do his own work without meddling with the affairs of others. This last, but not least, of the four cardinal virtues, in its outward manifestations, makes for the peace and happiness of the community, and working unseen and inwardly in the individual man it has a tendency to regulate the functions of the human soul and to make of it a veritable cosmos.
