A Quote by Richard L. Evans on execution, fatherhood, god, judgment, life, men, past, purpose, and world

But fortunately for us and for all men, it has not been given unto us to judge, nor to execute, nor to measure out the days and the years of men. We may be most grateful that such matters belong to the Lord God our Father, who sees things past and things to come. And, we may be grateful for the assurance that there is plan and purpose in this world, and in our own lives.

A Quote by Richard L. Evans on drugs, god, labor, pleasure, sleep, wonder, and work

Work is the best wonder drug ever devised by God. Work is as necessary to man as eating and sleeping. Pleasure derived from labor is the sweetest of all pleasures.

A Quote by Richard L. Evans on love, responsibility, sacrifice, and sincerity

Sincere love is something that sacrifices-not something that indulges itself. Sincere love is responsible. It would never knowingly hurt, but would heal.

A Quote by Richard L. Evans on compromise, direction, feeling, forgiveness, giving, humility, humor, marriage, needs, principles, repentance, respect, sense of humor, sharing, and understanding

Marriage requires the giving and keeping of confidences, the sharing of thoughts and feelings, respect and understanding always, marriage requires humility - the humility to repent, the humility to forgive. Marriage requires flexibility (to give and take) and firmness: not to compromise principles. And a wise and moderate sense of humor. Both need to be pulling together in the same direction.

A Quote by Richard L. Evans on divinity, eternity, faith, goodness, life, optimism, pessimism, rest, and words

May I make two citations from the words of a discerning editorial writer, not one of my faith, but one of much faith: "If we neglect the divine . . . and give ourselves over wholly to the human," he said, "we may certainly count upon nothing but the triumph of pessimism. . . . True optimism must rest upon a calm, unshakable faith in eternal life and in the unlimited goodness of him who gives it."

Be able to disagree, without being disagreeable. We must not let the things we can't do keep us from doing the things we can do.
