Virtue Quotes


For those who are principled or of good moral character, know that these are based on having virtue. The opposite of vice, virtue is an extremely noble characteristic, one that is the basis of epic tales of good vs. evil, such as Homer's Odyssey. Virtue quotes let us know the importance and power of virtue. C.S. Lewis said it well when he said, "Courage is not simply one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point." Shakespeare, in one of his virtue quotes, said, "Virtue is bold, and goodness never fearful." Such is the power of virtue. It guides us toward great things by showing us the way that we must go in order to be true to ourselves and to those around us. Reference.com Definition of Virtue
