A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on jesus and questions

The question each of us must answer is ... What shall I do with Jesus? He Himself has provided us the answer: "Follow me, and do the things which ye have seen me do"

A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on blessings, death, fear, god, guidance, heaven, justice, laws, obedience, popularity, preparation, responsibility, and world

We have the right to choose, but, likewise, we have the responsibility to choose. We cannot be neutral. There is no middle ground. The Lord knows this; Lucifer knows this. So there is a great campaign being waged today. On the one hand, Lucifer has attractively painted his road signs. You have read them; you have seen them. They are bright; they are attractive. They read something like this: "Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die." Another may read: "It's the popular thing to do." Another one may read: "Just this once won't matter." On the other hand, the Lord has prepared His road signs for our guidance. They read: "Fear God and keep his commandments." See II Kings 17:36-39. Another one may read: "As ye sow, so shall ye reap." See Galatians 6:7. Another one: "There is a law, irrevocably decreed in heaven before the foundations of this world, upon which all blessings are predicated- And when we obtain any blessing from God, it is by obedience to that law upon which it is predicated." (D&C 130:20-21) Thus we have two roads to follow, and we have the responsibility to choose.

A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on brothers, criticism, and truth

One man said, "I looked at my brother through the microscope of criticism, and I said, "How coarse my brother is." Then I looked at my brother through the telescope of scorn, and I said, "How small my brother is." Then I looked into the mirror of truth and I said, "How like me my brother is."

Our task is to become our best selves. One of God's greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final.

A Quote by Thomas S. Monson on fatherhood

It is imperative that we recognize that whatever has happened to us has happened to others. They have coped and so must we. We are not alone. Heavenly Father's help is near.

In the private sanctuary of one's own conscience lies that spirit, that determination to cast off the old person and to measure up to the stature of true potential.
