All virtues derived from love

"President Brigham Young (1801–77) declared of love, so fundamental to everything else: 'There is one virtue [or] attribute, … which, if cherished and practiced by the Saints, would prove salvation to thousands upon thousands. I allude to charity, or love, from which proceed forgiveness, long suffering, kindness, and patience.' All other virtues are derivatives and reflections of love!"

- Elder Neal A. Maxwell, Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Ensign, April 2004, p. 45. Quote from Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Brigham Young (1997), 217–18.
