A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on brothers, confession, god, humility, life, people, pride, service, and sister

The antidote for pride is humility - meekness, submissiveness. . . . God will have a humble people. Either we can choose to be humble or we can be compelled to be humble. . . . We can choose to humble ourselves by conquering enmity toward our brothers and sisters, esteeming them as ourselves, and lifting them as high or higher than we are. . . . We can choose to humble ourselves by receiving counsel and chastisement, . . . by forgiving those who have offended us, . . . by rendering selfless service, . . . by going on missions and preaching the word that can humble others, . . . by getting to the temple more frequently, [and] by confessing and forsaking our sins and being born of God. . . . We can choose to humble ourselves by loving God, adjusting our will to His, and putting Him first in our lives.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on blessings, confession, god, history, nations, spirituality, and world

We are recipients of God's choicest blessings. We enjoy an abundance of material things beyond that enjoyed by any other nation in the history of the world; but unless we keep alive a realization that all these blessings come from God and are a part of our great spiritual heritage, they may crumble as ashes in our hands. "In nothing doth man offend God, or against none is his wrath kindled, save those who confess not his hand in all things and obey not his commandments." (D&C 59:21)

A Quote by Eugene E. Wilson on america, confession, incompetence, leadership, mankind, needs, power, sympathy, and understanding

Mankind needs the American type of leadership. Let it be not discredited by those who are out of sympathy with it, who don't understand it or are incompetent to administer it. In America, the demand for power to compel is a confession of incompetence to lead.
