gifts

A Quote by Dr. William Clyde de Vane on danger, dawn, day, gifts, greatness, history, and time

Some things have not changed since the dawn of history, and bid fair to last out time itself. One of these things is the capacity for greatness in man-his capacity for being often the master of the event -and sometimes even more-the changer of the course of history itself. This capacity for greatness is a very precious gift, and we are under a danger in our day of stifling it.

A Quote by Elizabeth Kubler Ross on children, choice, day, fear, generations, gifts, life, love, mankind, needs, and responsibility

If we could raise one generation with unconditional love, there would be no Hitlers. We need to teach the next generation of children from Day One that they are responsible for their lives. Mankind's greatest gift, also its greatest curse, is that we have free choice. We can make our choices built from love or from fear.

When left unhealed, the past will destroy our lives. It buries our unique gifts, our creativity, and our talents.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on abstinence, brothers, christ, faults, gifts, idealism, peace, and power

If we would have peace as individuals, we must supplant enmity with forbearance, which means to refrain or abstain from finding fault or from condemning others. . . . We shall have power to do this if we really cherish in our hearts the ideals of Christ, who said: "Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift." (Matt. 5:23-24) Note the Savior did not say if you have ought against him, but if you find that another has ought against you.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on choice, direction, earth, freedom, gifts, god, life, and possessions

Next to the bestowal of life itself, the right to direct that life is God's greatest gift to man. . . . Freedom of choice is more to be treasured than any possession earth can give.

A Quote by David Oman McKay on choice, gifts, god, happiness, life, nature, pleasure, power, purpose, spirit, and time

The power of choice is a God-given gift, and the purpose of life is happiness. Things which pertain to the physical nature are so easily obtained and the pleasure so immediate that many spend most of their time seeking them and neglecting the permanent joys of the spirit.
