A Quote by David Oman McKay on god, indifference, life, meditation, mind, spirit, and spirituality

Spirituality is not constant meditation and an indifference to surrounding conditions and responsibilities; rather, it is doing those things which are in accordance with the mind and will of God. It concerns itself with temporal life as well as with things of the spirit.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on blessings, fatherhood, heart, language, prayer, sincerity, soul, spirit, virtue, words, and work

Prayer is the yearning of the spirit. It is the message of the soul sent directly to a loving father. The language is not mere words, but a loving heart in tune with the infinite. Sincere praying implies that when we ask for any blessing or virtue we should work for the blessing and cultivate the virtue.
