The pure soul is a beautiful rose, and the Three Divine Persons descend from Heaven to inhale its fragrance.
John Vianney
He who loves with purity considers not the gift of the lover, but the love of the giver.
Thomas a Kempis
God bestows more consideration on the purity of the intention with which our actions are performed than on the actions themselves.
Saint Augustine
There is no remedy so powerful against the heat of concupiscence as the remembrance of our Savior’s Passion. In all my difficulties I never found anything so efficacious as the wounds of Christ: In them I sleep secure; from them I derive new life.
Saint Augustine
At the root of all this is purity. Where there is purity there love grows. When purity and love come together, there is bliss.
Sathya Sai Baba
The light of love, the purity of grace, The mind, the Music breathing from her face, The heart whose softness harmonised the whole — And, oh! that eye was in itself a Soul!

Alphonsus Liguori
A clean heart is a free heart. A free heart can love Christ with an undivided love in chastity, convinced that nothing and nobody will separate it from his love. Purity, chastity, and virginity created a special beauty in Mary that attracted God’s attention. He showed his great love for the world by giving Jesus to her.
Mother Teresa

St. Jerome
Angels worship God with purity and love; men, with fear and trembling.

Filthy talk makes us feel comfortable with filthy action. But the one who knows how to control the tongue is prepared to resist the attacks of lust
Pope Clement I
In temptations against chastity, the spiritual masters advise us, not so much to contend with the bad thought, as to turn the mind to some spiritual, or, at least, indifferent object. It is useful to combat other bad thoughts face to face, but not thoughts of impurity.
Alphonsus Liguori
The purity men love is like the mists which envelope the earth, and not like the azure ether beyond.
