    Abdu'l-Baha wrote "The most vital duty, in this day, is to purify your characters, to correct your manners, and improve your conduct".

    This paper will investigate the virtues identified for the faithful individuals mentioned in Memorials of the Faithful and how they exemplified character, manners and conduct. The Seven Valleys will "be used as a guide for human conduct." (Promulgation of Universal Peace, page 244)
