A Quote by Bruce R. McConkie on earth, laws, life, mortality, principles, saints, and work

We are here on earth to work-to work long, hard, arduous hours, to work until our backs ache and our tired muscles knot, to work all our days. This mortal probation is one in which we are to eat our bread in the sweat of our faces until we return to the dust from whence we came. Work is the law of life; it is the ruling principle in the lives of the Saints.

Bruce R. McConkie (1915 - 1985)
