A Quote by Franklin D. Richards on choice, conscience, country, exercise, good, government, and secrets

We are indeed fortunate to live in this favored country where we can participate in the selection of our governmental leaders and register our choice in a secret ballot. The selection of proper leaders is extremely important in maintaining good government. I encourage all of you who are eligible to vote to exercise your franchise according to the dictates of your conscience.

A Quote by Franklin D. Richards on attitude, life, opportunity, and people

We must remember that even though a person may not be the elect today, a year from now his whole attitude may have changed, and he may have become one of the elect. That's why we should continually, throughout their lives, politely give people many opportunities to hear the Lord's voice.

A Quote by Franklin D. Richards on ability, acceptance, circumstances, criticism, exercise, good, and patience

Sometimes we are misunderstood, even by those who are closest to us. Under such circumstances, patience will develop within us the capacity to accept criticism and censure, whether we feel such criticism is warranted or not. This ability to exercise forbearance under provocation means that we are following the Savior's teachings, to do good to those who despitefully use us and to turn the other cheek.
