  • In life all must choose at times. Sometimes, two possibilities are good; neither is evil. Usually, however, one is of greater import than the other. When in doubt, each must choose that which concerns the good of others—the greater law—rather than that which chiefly benefits ourselves—the lesser law. . . . That was the choice made in Eden.

  • Man . . . was made from different and opposite substances [i.e., dust and spirit] . . . [and] these two things contend against each other in man: so that if the [spirit of man], which has its origin from God, gains the mastery, it is immortal, and lives in perpetual light; if, on the other hand, the body shall overpower the [spirit], and subject it to its dominion, it is in everlasting darkness and death . . . [and will subject] them to everlasting punishment.

  • The place appointed for Adam’s residence was a garden, not an ivory house nor a palace overlaid with gold, but a garden . . . Adam too was born into humble circumstances. This is a clarion call to the Saints to live lives of simplicity rather than excess, humility rather than extravagance.

  • The submission of one’s will is really the only uniquely personal thing we have to place on God’s altar. The many other things we “give” . . . are actually the things He has already given or loaned to us. However, when you and I finally submit ourselves, by letting our individual wills be swallowed up in God’s will, then we are really giving something to Him! It is the only possession which is truly ours to give!”

  • Faith is based on truth, and is preceded by knowledge. Until a person gains a knowledge of the truth he can have no faith… faith and truth cannot be separated; if there is to be faith, saving faith, faith unto life and salvation, faith that leads to the celestial world, there must first be truth. Not only is true knowledge of God a conditional precedent to the acquirement of this faith, but faith can be exercised only by those who conform to the principles of truth which come from the true God who actually exists.

  • “Charity is not developed entirely by our own power, even though our faithfulness is a necessary qualification to receive it. Rather, charity is 'bestowed’ upon the true followers of Christ (Moroni 7:48). The purpose of the endowment of charity is not merely to cause Christ’s followers to engage in charitable acts towards others, desirable as that is. The ultimate purpose is to transform HIS followers to BECOME LIKE HIM.”

  • As in the parable of the wheat and the tares, the tares of the field may not be distinguishable from the wheat until they begin to bear fruit. It is the same for us as we get older. When we choose to fill our lives with good and uplifting experiences, then as we age our “fruit” will begin to show forth distinguishing us from the sad and miserable who did not choose the best for their lives.

  • There are a good many things which would not be worth bothering about if I were going to live only seventy years; but which I had better bother about, very seriously, if I’m going to live forever. Perhaps my bad temper or my jealousy are gradually getting worse. So gradually, however, that the increase in seventy years will not be very noticeable. But it might be absolute hell in a million years!
