A Quote by James E. Faust on belief, hunger, inventions, joy, leadership, miracles, people, science, spirituality, and technology

What are most people hungry for? I believe it is spiritual and moral leadership. Increases in technology, scientific inventions, and medical miracles have been marvelous and incredible. But we must use them properly to bring us joy, and that requires spiritual and moral leadership.

A Quote by James E. Faust on balance, change, order, respect, risk, self-respect, strength, and wishes

There are times when each of us has to have some gumption to take a stand as to what we wish to preserve or change in order to maintain our self-respect and not be as "a reed shaken with the wind" (Matt. 11:7) . . . . We lose much credibility and strength, and we risk being weighed on an uneven balance, when, Don Quixote-like, we go around "tilting windmills". Ensign, Mar 2000, p. 2.

A Quote by James E. Faust on awareness, day, divinity, friendship, hunger, kindness, past, people, restaurants, spirituality, and time

Our awareness of time affects how we think and act. This is illustrated by the story about the clock in a restaurant window. It "had stopped a few minutes past noon. One day a friend asked the owner if he knew the clock was not running. 'Yes,' replied the restaurant man, 'but you would be surprised to know how many people look at that clock, think they are hungry, and come in to get something to eat."' If only there were some kind of divine timepiece that would arouse a spiritual hunger in people!

A Quote by James E. Faust on divinity, faith, god, heroism, life, listening, pain, soul, and truth

Here then is a great truth. In the pain, the agony, and the heroic endeavors of life, we pass through a refiner's fire, and the insignificant and the unimportant in our lives can melt away like dross and make our faith bright, intact, and strong. In this way the divine image can be mirrored from the soul. It is part of the purging toll exacted of some to become acquainted with God. In the agonies of life, we seem to listen better to the faint, godly whisperings of the Divine Shepherd.

A Quote by James E. Faust on adversity, blessings, life, and time

One of the advantages of having lived a long time is that you can often remember when you had it worse. I am grateful to have lived long enough to have known some of the blessings of adversity.

A Quote by James E. Faust on day, divinity, preparation, and purpose

There is divine purpose in the adversities we encounter every day. They prepare, they purge, they purify, and thus they bless.

A Quote by James E. Faust on beginning, disappointment, failure, god, grace, life, love, sorrow, and weakness

In the many trials of life, when we feel abandoned and when sorrow, sin, disappointment, failure, and weakness make us less than we should ever be, there can come the healing salve of the unreserved love in the grace of God. It is a love that lifts and blesses. It is a love that sustains a new beginning on a higher level and thereby continues "from grace to grace."
