A Quote by Harold B. Lee on angels, eternity, happiness, joy, possessions, purity, and youth

How glorious and near to the angels is youth that is clean. This youth has joy unspeakable here and eternal happiness hereafter. Sexual purity is youth's most precious possession. It is the foundation of all righteousness.

A Quote by Harold B. Lee on children, crime, destruction, lies, and life

A Quote by Harold B. Lee on ability, day, god, and repentance

There is only one day that you and I have to live and that's today. There is nothing we can do about yesterday except repent, and there may be no tomorrows. The thing for us to do when we arise from our beds as God gives us a new day, is to pray that whatever comes to our hands, we will do it to the best of our ability.

A Quote by Harold B. Lee on belief, day, friendship, observation, truth, and wisdom

A truth of the gospel is not a truth until you live it. You do not really believe in tithing until you pay it. The word of wisdom to you is not a truth of the gospel until you keep it. The Sabbath day is not a holy day unless you observe it. . . . A friend is not a friend unless you defend him.

A Quote by Harold B. Lee on books, eternity, heart, practice, presidency, truth, and understanding

In his book Stand Ye In Holy Places, President Harold B. Lee wrote that one is converted when his eyes see what he ought to see, his ears hear what he ought to hear and his heart understands what he ought to understand. "And what he ought to see, hear and understand is truth-eternal truth-and then practice it. That is conversion," he wrote.
