A Quote by David Oman McKay on compliments, failure, love, obligation, trust, and world

To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved. Love is the sweetest thing in the world, but to be trusted throws upon him who receives that trust an obligation that he must not fail to discharge.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on abstinence, brothers, christ, faults, gifts, idealism, peace, and power

If we would have peace as individuals, we must supplant enmity with forbearance, which means to refrain or abstain from finding fault or from condemning others. . . . We shall have power to do this if we really cherish in our hearts the ideals of Christ, who said: "Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift." (Matt. 5:23-24) Note the Savior did not say if you have ought against him, but if you find that another has ought against you.
