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.

Next to the bestowal of life itself, the right to direct that life is God's greatest gift to man. . . . Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on evil, fighting, imagination, satisfaction, slander, vices, and world

We are prone to magnify weaknesses and to imagine vices in others that do not exist. We chew the cud of slander with satisfaction - slander, "whose whisper over the world's diameter, as level as the cannon to its blank, transports his poisoned shot." Talk about battles yet to be fought! Backbiting and evil speaking head the list!
