“Let thy bowels also be full of charity towards all men, and to the household of faith, and let virtue garnish thy thoughts unceasingly; then shall thy confidence wax strong in the presence of God; and the doctrine of the priesthood shall distil upon thy soul as the dews from heaven.” – Doctrine & Covenants 121:45
“Virtue in its fuller sense encompasses all traits of righteousness that help us form our character.” – James E. Faust
