A Quote by David Oman McKay on blessings, giving, life, losing, power, religion, and spirituality

[By fasting] we are losing nothing financially; we are blessing ourselves physically; and we are gaining greater spiritual power to withstand the temptations that we meet in life; and, best of all, [in giving to the poor] we are practicing the very essence of our religion.

David McKay (1873 - 1970)

A Quote by Daniel H. Wells on blessings, charity, dependence, direction, god, hunger, independence, and path

You may give a piece of bread to a hungry person, and when the cravings of hunger return some one else must administer to his wants again; to put that person in a position to earn his own subsistence is true charity; in this way you direct his feet in the path of true independence, he is then only dependent on his own exertions and on the blessings of his God.
