The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ would take the slums out of people, and then they would take themselves out of the slums.  The world would mold men by changing their environment. Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature

Bad experience is a school that only fools keep going to.

God loves us. He's watching us, he wants us to succeed, and we'll know someday that he has not left one thing undone for the eternal welfare of each of us. If we only knew it, there are heavenly hosts pulling for us -- friends in heaven that we can't rememer now, who yearn for our victory.

God’s wrath will soon shake the nations of the earth and will be poured out on the wicked without measure. "I Testify" General Conference, Oct 1998

Men and women who turn their lives over to God will discover that He can make a lot more out of their lives than they can. He can deepen their joys, expand their vision, quicken their minds, strengthen their muscles, lift their spirits, multiply their blessings, increase their opportunities, comfort their souls, and pour out peace.

Nothing is going to startle us more when we pass through the veil to the other side than to realize how well we know our Father and how familiar His face is to us.

Pride is concerned with who is right. Humility is concerned with what is right.

The proud wish God would agree with them. They are not interested in changing their opinions to agree with God's.

When we put God first, all other things fall into their proper place or drop out of our lives.

You are free to choose, but you are not free to alter the consequences of your decisions.

You cannot do wrong and feel right. It is impossible!
