'Be not faithless, but believing'
A man's or woman's life becomes what his or her thoughts make of it.
"Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you believe you were meant to be"
Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy.
Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a
meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.
"If you can't, you must. If you must, you can."
It's not knowing what to do, it's doing what you know."
Believe in your dreams and they 'may' come true.
Believe in yourself and they 'will' come true.
"Living the gospel does not mean the storms of life will pass us by, but we will be better prepared to face them with serenity and peace. 'Search diligently, pray always, and be believing,' the Lord admonished, 'and all things shall work together for your good, if ye walk uprightly.'"
Joseph B. Wirthlin
All Things are Possible if you Believe
"There is a great difference in believing or knowing that there is a God and in knowing God. When we claim that we know God,...there is great responsibility to respect and love and follow his counsel and his doctrines and his commandments and to grow as a child to become more godlike."
Bernard P. Brockbank
"No matter what circumstances you experience, your influence can be marvelously far-reaching.
I believe some of you have a tendency to underestimate your profound capacity
for blessing the lives of others. More often than not,
it is not on the stage with some public pronouncement but in your example of
righteousness and the countless gentle acts of love and kindness done so willingly,
so often on a one-to-one basis."
James E. Faust
"When the time comes for you to sacrifice for that which you believe
will you have the faith to make that sacrifice?
Will you commit to do anything the Lord asks,
even if it means putting aside a lifelong goal?"
"When the challenges of mortality come, and they come for all of us,
it may seem hard to have faith and hard to believe.
At these times only faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His Atonement can bring us peace,
hope, and understanding. Only faith that He suffered for our sakes will give us the strength to endure to
the end. When we gain this faith, we experience a mighty change of heart, and like Enos,
we become stronger and begin to feel a desire for the welfare of our brothers and sisters.
We pray for them, that they too will be lifted and strengthened
through faith on the Atonement of our Savior Jesus Christ."
Robert D Hale
"Truly understood and properly practiced, faith is one of the grand and glorious powers of eternity. It is a force powerful beyond our comprehension. "Through faith … the worlds were framed by the word of God." Through faith, waters are parted, the sick healed, the wicked silenced, and salvation made possible. Our faith is the foundation upon which all our spiritual lives rest. It should be the most important resource of our lives. Faith is not so much something we believe; faith is something we live."
Joseph B. Wirthlin
"I too believe that God will always make a way where there is no way. I believe that if we will walk in obedience to the commandments of God, if we will follow the counsel of the priesthood, he will open a way even where there appears to be no way."
Gordon B. Hinckley
"We cannot have faith without belief, but we can believe without having faith.
Belief is the foundation of faith. Faith is trusting in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The scriptures contain many assurances of salvation to those who exercise faith and obey the commandments... Faith is the motivating force that impels action."
O. Leslie Stone
"My final plea tonight is that you have the courage to stand firm for truth and righteousness. Because the trend in society today is away from the values and principles the Lord has given us, you will almost certainly be called upon to defend that which you believe. Unless the roots of your testimony are firmly planted, it will be difficult for you to withstand the ridicule of those who challenge your faith. When firmly planted, your testimony of the gospel, of the Savior, and of our Heavenly Father will influence all that you do throughout your life. The adversary would like nothing better than for you to allow derisive comments and criticism of the Church to cause you to question and doubt.
Your testimony, when constantly nourished, will keep you safe."
Thomas S. Monson
