A Quote by David Oman McKay on age, certainty, joy, life, love, pessimism, and time

Please do not think me a pessimist. I love life. I think it is a joy to live in this age. Every morning, as I greet the sun as he ushers in these unexcelled autumn days, I feel the joy of living. I realize the accomplishments, to a certain degree, of this wonderful mechanistic age. Today time and distance are practically annihilated.

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.
