quotes tagged with 'finishing'

"In life, as in business, there has always been a need for those persons who could be called finishers. Their ranks are few, their opportunities many, their contributions great. From the very beginning to the present time, a fundamental question remains to be answered by each who runs the race of life. Shall I falter, or shall I finish?"

Stick to your task ’til it sticks to you;

Beginners are many, but enders are few.

Honor, power, place and praise

Will always come to the one who stays. Stick to your task ’til it sticks to you;

Bend at it, sweat at it, smile at it, too;

For out of the bend and the sweat and the smile

Will come life’s victories after a while.

The best things are always worth finishing. ‘Know ye not that ye are a temple of God?’ (1 Corinthians 3:16.) Most assuredly we are. As long and laborious as the effort may seem, we must keep shaping and setting the stones that will make our accomplishments ‘a grand and imposing spectacle.’ We must take advantage of every opportunity to learn and grow, dream dreams and see visions, work toward their realization, wait patiently when we have no other choice, lean on our sword and rest a while, but get up and fight again. Perhaps we will not see the full meaning of our effort in our own lifetime. But our children will, or our children’s children will, until finally we, with all of them can give the Hosanna Shout.
God loves each of us and Jesus of Nazareth, his Only Begotten Son, came to ‘succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees’ (D&C 81:5)—bringing a divine form of worker’s compensation to those keep tugging those granite boulders into place. We are laying the foundation of a great work—our own inestimable future.
