A Quote by Richard L. Evans on agreement, death, judgment, justice, life, men, perspective, purpose, thinking, time, and understanding

With our limited understanding, often we do not agree with the time and the place and the manner in which men come and go. We see many live and prosper, who, according to our way of thinking may not deserve to do either. We see many die, who, in our judgment, have earned the right to live and whose presence among us is sorely needed. And if, with our limited perspective and understanding, we were called upon to give an explanation of the pattern of life and death as it daily takes shape before our eyes, we might be led to conclude that in it all there is lack of purpose, lack of justice, lack of consistency.

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 life and tragedy

The tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin it.

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."
