A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on enemies, justice, mind, nobility, pride, and reason

Just as meekness is in all our virtues, so is pride in all our sins. Whatever its momentary and alluring guise, pride is the enemy, "the first of the sins." One reason to be particularly on guard against pride is that "the devilish strategy of Pride is that it attacks us, not in our weakest points, but in our strongest. It is preeminently the sin of the noble mind." Not only of the noble mind, but also of the semi-righteous.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on divinity, life, obedience, patience, and resignation

Patience is, therefore, clearly not fatalistic, shoulder-shrugging resignation; it is accepting a divine rhythm to life; it is obedience prolonged.

The dues of discipleship are high indeed, and how much we can take so often determines how much we can then give.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on intelligence

It is so easy to be confrontive without being informative; indignant without being intelligent; impulsive without being insightful.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on debt, eternity, faith, gifts, immortality, life, and mortality

Comparatively, we are so much quicker to return favors and to pay our debts to mortals - and we should be responsive and grateful. But what of Him who gave us mortal life itself, who will ere long give us all immortality, and who proffers to the faithful the greatest gift of all, eternal life? We are poor bookkeepers, indeed!
