alt "The flower by the roadside that catches the dust of every traveler is not the one to be admired, and is seldom, if ever plucked. But the one blooming way up on the hillside top, protected by a perpendicular cliff is the flower with the virgin perfume, and the one the boy will almost risk his life to protect." -President David O. McKay

alt President Faust used in a talk titled "The Virtues of Righteous Daughters of God". It was found on an old sampler in a museum in Newfoundland stitched in 1813 it reads: "Virtue is the chiefest beauty of the mind, the noblest ornament of humankind. Virtue is our safeguard and our guiding star that stirs up reason when our senses err."

alt "How glorious is she who lives the chaste life. She walks unfearful in the full glare of noon-day sun, for she is without moral infirmity. Her virtue cannot be challenged by any just accuser for she lives beyond reproach. She is honored and respected by all mankind, for she is beyond censure. She is loved by the Lord, for she stands without blemish. The exaltations of eternities awaits her coming." -The First Presidency in 1942

alt "Give me a young man who has kept himself morally clean and has faithfully attended his church meetings. Give me a young man who has magnified his priesthood and has earned the Duty to God Award and is an Eagle Scout. Give me a young man who is a seminary graduate and has a burning testimony of the Book of Mormon. Give me such a man, and I will give you a young man who can perform miracle for the Lord in the mission field and throughout his life." -President Ezra Taft Benson, General Priesthood Meeting, April Conference in 1986.
