You can be excellent in every way. You can be first class. There is no need for you to be a scrub. Respect yourself. Do not feel sorry for yourself. Do not dwell on unkind things others may say about you. Polish and refine whatever talents the Lord has given you. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life and look for its opportunities. ~ Gordon B. Hinckley
President Gordon B. Hinckley: "Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others...By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are only thinking of ourselves."
"Be Strong and of good courage. You are truly royal spirit daughters of almighty God. You are Princesses destined to become queens. Your own wondrous story has already begun. Your once upon a time is now." - President Dieter F. Uchtdorf
3.8.2015-"Ask yourself, 'How did God bless me today?' If you do that long enough and with faith, you will find yourself remembering blessings. And sometimes, you will have gifts brought to your mind which you failed to notice during the day, but which you will then know were a touch of God’s hand in your life.” –Henry B. Eyring
"as i held her hand and saw mortal life drain from her fingers, i confess i was overcome. before i married her, she had been the girl of my dreams, to use the words of a song then popular. she was my dear companion for more than two-thirds of a century, my equal before the lord - really, my superior. and now in my old age, she has again become the girl of my dreams." [president gordon b. hinckley about his wife, marjorie] <3
“I am amazed at the Savior’s encircling arms of mercy and love, [and] I testify that [He] is able and eager to forgive our sins. What a marvelous privilege for us to come unto Christ. Divine forgiveness is one of the sweetest fruits of the gospel, removing pain from our hearts and replacing [it] with joy and peace. Jesus declares, ‘Will ye not now return unto me, and repent of your sins, and be converted, that I may heal you?’” –Neil L. Andersen http://lds.org/church/leader/neil-l-andersen
