A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on god, jesus, life, reason, work, and world

By seeing life's experiences through to the end, on our small scale, we can finally say, as Jesus did on the cross, "It is finished." We, too, can then have "finished our preparations," having done the particular work God has given each of us to do. However, our tiny cup cannot be taken from us either. For this reason have we come unto the world.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on affliction, christ, experience, god, life, men, and schools

At times God's best pupils experience the most rigorous and continuous courses. Eventually those who prove to be men of Christ will thereby become distinguished alumni of life's school of affliction, graduating with honors.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on god, good, honesty, and self-esteem

Looking for honest ways to lift one another would . . . be more beneficial to our own self-esteem, for we would see more good in ourselves. We would cease to be so critical of our weaknesses and would find ways to allow our weaknesses to become strengths with God's help.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on children and time

If we spent as much time lifting our children as we do criticizing them, how effectively we could help them to see themselves in a more positive light!

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on soul and yielding

The harrowing of the soul can be like the harrowing of the soil; to increase the yield, things are turned upside down.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on control, family, history, home, mankind, men, military, time, and women

When the real history of mankind is fully disclosed, will it feature the echoes of gunfire or the shaping sound of lullabies? The great armistices made by military men of the peacemaking of women in home and in neighborhoods? Will what happened in cradles and kitchens prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses? When the surf of the centuries has made the great pyramids so much sand, the everlasting family will still be standing, because it is a celestial institution, formed outside telestial time.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on appreciation and god

One simply cannot come to a cause like the kingdom of God, with its celestial concepts, and not appreciate and identify with what Ammon said: "Behold, I say unto you, I cannot say the smallest part which I feel."
