“The FUTURE of this world has long been DECLARED; the final outcome between GOOD and evil is already KNOWN. There is absolutely no question as to who WINS because the VICTORY has already been posted on the SCOREBOARD. The only really strange thing is all of this is that we are still down here on the FIELD trying to decide which TEAM’S JERSEY we want to wear!”

 “Let Love Be the Lodestar of Your Life,”
Love is like the Polar Star. In a changing world, it is a constant. It is of the very essence of the gospel. It is the security of the home. It is the safeguard of community life. It is a beacon of hope in a world of distress.
President Gordon B. Hinckley

“We must go beyond textbooks, go out into the bypaths and untrodden depths of the wilderness and travel and explore and tell the world the glories of our journey;”   ― John Hope Franklin

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

"Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there's a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see.”

“Is that the basis of friendship? Is it as reactive as that? Do we respond only to people who seem to find us interesting?... Do we all buzz or ring or light up when people press our vanity buttons, and only then? Can I think of anyone in my whole life whom I have liked without his first showing signs of liking me?” 
 Wallace Stegner, Crossing to Safety

 The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.  No matter our talents, education, backgrounds or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before.  Everyone can create.  You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty.  You might say, I am not the creative type.   If that is how you feel, think again.  Creation is your opportunity in this life….. Start small.  Creativity does not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano.   Don’t let the voice of critics paralyze you.  You will make the World a better place.  Improve, beautify, extend, smile, cultivate, develop, create.  -Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"That which we persist in doing becomes easier - not that the nature of the task has changed, but our ability to do has increased." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
 “[Growing] up in this culture, it is very hard to get a biblical perspective on motherhood. … Children rank way below college. Below world travel for sure. Below the ability to go out at night at your leisure. Below honing your body at the gym. Below any job you may have or hope to get.” She then adds: “Motherhood is not a hobby, it is a calling. You do not collect children because you find them cuter than stamps. It is not something to do if you can squeeze the time in. It is what God gave you time for.”- Rachel Jankovic
