"It is exciting to realize that even though the Lord has all things at his disposition...
His greatest interest is still the happiness of each of us."
John B. Dickson
"Even though the tasks of life become heavy, and although sorrow thrusts a drooping burden upon us, the light that emanates from our Savior beckons us on, undismayed."
Joseph B. Wirthlin
"The Savior's loving warmth and healing touch lift us and give us strength to endure."
"He is your Savior, your Redeemer, your Shepherd. He knows and loves you perfectly.
How well do you know Him?"
"'Words do not convey meanings; they call them forth.' I speak out of the context of my experience, and you listen out of the context of yours, and that is why communication is difficult."
David O. McKay
"Needed are...souls filled with compassion, that we might communicate not only eye to eye, or voice to ear, but in the majestic style of the Savior, even heart to heart."
President Thomas S. Monson
"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?"
"We cannot control what others choose to do, and so we cannot force our children to heaven, but we can determine what we will do. And we can decide that we will do all we can to bring down the powers of heaven into that family we want so much to have forever."
Henry B. Eyring
"Ignorant of the plan of salvation, many simply do not know what the journey of life is all about. Therefore, modern selfishness and skepticism brush aside the significance of the Savior..."
Neal A. Maxwell
“How grateful we should be that a wise Creator fashioned an earth and placed us here, with a veil of forgetfulness of our previous existence so that we might experience a time of testing, an opportunity to prove ourselves in order to qualify for all that God has prepared for us to receive.”
Thomas S. Monson
… They have become accustomed to exaggerating their small imperfections and underestimating great blessings and have lost the capacity to rejoice.”
Quentin L. Cook
“While the Lord insists on our repentance, most people don’t feel such a compelling need. They include themselves among those who try to be good. They have no evil intent. Yet the Lord is clear in His message that all need to repent not only from sins of commission but from sins of omission as well.”
Russell M. Nelson
"A house does not have to be perfect to be a home of joy, a child does not have to behave perfectly to love and be loved, and every moment of life does not have to be perfect to be of value. Too often, I realize, we fail to see the glorious reality of the simple joy that abounds in the seemingly mundane routine of day-to-day living. Instead, we tend to idolize the past, idealize the future, and devalue the present....
What better way to show our appreciation to Heavenly Father for what we have than to embrace our lives,
albeit 'ordinary' and 'unexciting,' with joy?"
