The words ''virtue'' and ''value'' are much on our lips and in our minds (and in our ears-- it seems as though they are in danger of becoming buzz-words rather than precious aspirations and attainments). De Marco suggests rather that the virtues should be in our hearts as expressions of love. By examining twenty-eight virtues, with many stories of real lives, examples from literature, quotations from poets, philosophers and theologians, De Marco shows how they are ''particularized expressions of love,'' and how the virtues ''allow love to express itself.'' He presents a beautiful lesson that virtues are indeed attainable, by showing in diverse ways how they have been attained.
