temperately (comparative more temperately, superlative most temperately)

  1. In a thoughtfully measured or regulated manner, eschewing extremes.
    1601 My pulse, as yours, doth temperately keep time,
    And makes as healthful music: it is not madness

    And I the matter will re-word; which madness
    Would gambol from. — Shakespeare, Hamlet, Act 3, Scene 4.
