The LDS Daily WOOL© Archive - Virtues

"The virtues expressed in 'More Holiness Give Me' fall into several groups. Some are personal goals, like more holiness give me; more strivings within; more faith, gratitude, and purity; more fit for the kingdom; more purpose in prayer; and more trust in the Lord. Others center on adversity. They include patience in suffering, meekness in trial, praise for relief, strength to overcome, freedom from earth stains, and longing for home. The rest firmly anchor us to our Savior: more sense of His care; more pride in His glory; more hope in His word; more joy in His service; more tears for His sorrows; more pain at His grief; more blessed and holy; and more, Savior, like Thee. More of these virtues is better. Less is not desirable." - David Burton, "More Holiness Give Me," Ensign (CR), November 2004, p.98

There is nothing in all this world as magnificent as virtue. It glows without tarnish. It is precious and beautiful. It is above price. It cannot be bought or sold. It is the fruit of self-mastery. - Gordon B. Hinckley, "How Can I Become the Woman of Whom I Dream?" Ensign (CR), May 2001, p. 93

And that is the touch-stone of virtue with the Christian today. Does he walk by faith? Is he willing to accept the words of the witnesses of the Christ and the words of the Master, and not desire to handle and see for himself as did Thomas? For I want to tell you that when a man has to do a thing, there is no virtue in it. But when he chooses to, when he exercises faith and confidence, then there is virtue and righteousness in it. -
Joseph E. Robinson, “Conference Report,” April 1915, Outdoor Meeting, p.76
