A Quote by Lorenzo Snow on age, blessings, business, desires, duty, earth, good, happiness, honor, life, mortality, opportunity, order, privilege, and purpose

Among us, I am happy to say, old age is honorable, and regarded as a blessing from the Lord. It is our duty to desire to live long upon the earth, that we may do as much good as we possibly can. I esteem it a great privilege to have the opportunity of living in mortality. The Lord has sent us here "for a wise and glorious purpose," and it should be our business to find out what that purpose is and then to order our lives accordingly.

Lorenzo Snow (1814 - 1901)
