A Quote by David Oman McKay on blessings, giving, life, losing, power, religion, and spirituality

[By fasting] we are losing nothing financially; we are blessing ourselves physically; and we are gaining greater spiritual power to withstand the temptations that we meet in life; and, best of all, [in giving to the poor] we are practicing the very essence of our religion.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on acceptance, character, desires, fear, individuality, rules, spirituality, and strength

There is [a] spiritual strength derived from the subjecting of the physical appetite to the will of the individual. "He who reigns within himself and rules passions, desires, and fears is more than king." If there were no other virtues in fasting but gaining strength of character, that alone would be sufficient justification for its universal acceptance.
