The Value for August 
"Virtue is a pattern of thought and behavior based on high moral standards.  It encompasses chastity and moral purity.  Virtue begins in the heart and in the mind. It is the accumulation of thousands of small decisions and actions." 
- Elaine Dalton, General YW President

The Virtues of Righteous Daughters of God 
Ensign, May 2003, 108

Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies (Proverbs 31:10).

I will prepare to enter the temple and remain pure and worthy.

My thoughts and actions will be based on high moral standards.

Quest for Virtue: Peace is the reward

"You will need [courage] to be chaste and virtuous. You live in a world where moral values have, in great measure, been tossed aside, where sin is flagrantly on display, and where temptations to stray from the strait and narrow path surround you. Many are the voices telling you that you are far too provincial or that there is something wrong with you if you still believe there is such a thing as immoral behavior."Isaiah declared, 'Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness' (Isaiah 5:20)."Great courage will be required as you remain chaste and virtuous amid the accepted thinking of the times." 

- Thomas S. Monson, "May You Have Courage," Ensign, May 2009, 125
