And now these three remain:  faith, hope, and love.  But the greatest of these is love.  
1Corinthians 13:13 

A virtue is a holy habit; it is a behavior showing high moral standards.
This quarter we will focus on compassion.

Finally, all of you, have unity in mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind.  1Peter 3:8

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.   
Ephesians 4:32
