The Virtues are our guides to living in accordance with the Three Principles. They each have their own relationships with the Principles, and they are not always going to lead you to one correct choice. The Virtue of Valor may lead us in the opposite direction of Compassion in some cases. It’s just not possible to perfectly follow all Virtues in all situations. Yet we should strive to know them all well enough in order that we may be able to choose wisely between them on those occasions.
