Discretion is being able to raise your eyebrow instead of your voice.
Author: J. Reuben Clark, Jr, Source: Prophets, Principles, and National Survival
I have a complete confidence in the aggregate wisdom of the ... people, if they are given and made to understand the facts. he wisdom of the mass is always greater than the wisdom of the individual or of the group. The few may be more subtle, more agile-minded, more resourceful; they may for a time push to the front and scamper ahead in the march; they may on occasion and for a time entice us down the wrong highway at the crossroads.
But the great slow-moving, deliberate-thinking mass plods along over the years down the Divinely appointed way. Led astray, they slowly, cumberously swing back to the right road, no matter what the toil or the sacrifice may be, and when they start the return, they crush whatever lies in their path. So has humanity come up through the ages.
The things you say, the tone of your voice, the anger or calm of your words—these things are noticed by your children and by others. They see and learn both the kind and the unkind things we say or do. Nothing exposes our true selves more than how we treat one another in the home.Author: Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin , Source: The Virtue of Kindness, Liahona, May 2005, 26–28. http://www.l...
Have you ever felt a particular scripture speak directly to your heart and help answer a current problem or question? Have you ever felt the Spirit as you learned a precious truth from the scriptures or a Church leader? Elder Neal A. Maxwell of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles has said that “the scriptures not only witness the truth about Christ and his relevance for mankind, but are, in a sense, like a songbook. There are many melodies that need to be sung and heard. … Only through personal involvement with the scriptures can we find the particular scriptural songs to meet our needs. … We must—ourselves—open the songbook and hear the music” (A Time to Choose , 52).Author: Relief Society General Presidency, Source: “‘For Such a Time as This’,” Liahona, Feb 2002, 18. http://www...
As we share our feelings and insights about the counsel found in the Visiting Teaching Messages, we will find ways to apply in our lives the words of latter-day prophets and Church leaders and prophets of old. The scriptures are constant and eternal. The same is true of teachings from our modern prophets, for as the Lord declared, “Whether by mine own voice or by the voice of my servants, it is the same” (D&C 1:38).
The real problem of the Christian life comes where people do not usually look for it. It comes the very moment you wake up each morning.Author: C.S. Lewis , Source: Mere Christianity, pg 170
All your wishes and hopes for the day rush at you like wild animals. And the first job each morning consists simply in shoving them all
back; in listening to that other voice, taking that other point of view, letting that other larger, stronger, quieter life come flowing in . And so
on, all day. Standing back from all you natural fussings and frettings; coming in out of the wind.
Although Mrs. Patton has long since left mortality, I have felt a strong impression to share with you the manner in which our Heavenly Father blessed and provided for her, a widow, in her need. With all the strength of my soul I testify that our Heavenly Father loves each one of us. He hears the prayers of humble hearts; He hears our cries for help, as He heard Mrs. Patton. His Son, our Savior and Redeemer, speaks to each of us today: “Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him.”Author: President Thomas S. Monson , Source: Mrs. Patton—the Story Continues. October 2007 General Conferen...
Will we listen for that knock? Will we hear that voice? Will we open that door to the Lord, that we may receive the help He is so ready to provide? I pray that we will.
Some alternate voices are those of well-motivated men and women who are merely trying to serve their brothers and sisters and further the cause of Zion. Their efforts fit within the Lord’s teaching that his servants should not have to be commanded in all things, but “should be anxiously engaged in a good cause, and do many things of their own free will, and bring to pass much righteousness.” (D&C 58:27)Author: Dallin H. Oaks, Source: http://library.lds.org/nxt/gateway.dll/Magazines/Ensign/1989.h...
