Virtue is the exteriorization of the pure heart. 6 Virtue consists in allowing free passage, in the soul, to the Beauty of God. — 17 — 6 To strive for perfection: not because we wish to be perfect for our own glory, but because perfection is beautiful and imperfection ugly; or because virtue is self-evident—that is to say, in conformity with the Real.
