journeys

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on awareness, blessings, existence, gifts, god, grace, journeys, laws, life, men, order, perspective, problems, sensuality, speech, spirituality, and vision

We are all aware of man's poor peripheral vision in that his views are often narrow and heedless of what is going on on each side of him. Man's problem is often one of length of view, too. This poorness of perspective often produces wonderful and pathetic paradoxes: men who have been given the blessings of life by the grace of God, cry that life is senseless; men who have been given breath and voice by God, use the powers of speech to deny God's existence; men who have been given the capacity to feel, exult so much in this gift that sensual things sublimate spiritual things; and some men who see our reaching out to distant places in our solar system conclude that this special planet is a random, unplanned mutant and refuse to connect the order of physical laws (that makes such journeys into space possible) with an Orderer.

A Quote by Neal A. Maxwell on facts, journeys, and path

When great individuals move so marvelously along the straight and narrow path, it is unseemly of us to call attention to the fact that one of their shoelaces is untied as they make the journey.

A Quote by Marcus Aurelius Antoninus on blessings, brevity, giving, journeys, laws, life, and nature

Spend your brief moment according to nature's law, and serenely greet the journey's end as an olive falls when it is ripe, blessing the branch that bare it, and giving thanks to the tree that gave it life.

Marcus Aurelius (121 - 180)

A Quote by L. Lionel Kendrick on challenge, children, communication, concern, divinity, fatherhood, feeling, gifts, home, journeys, life, mortality, needs, people, relationships, silence, and suffering

The real challenge that we face in our communications with others is to condition our hearts to have Christlike feelings for all of Heavenly Father's children. When we develop this concern for the condition of others, we then will communicate with them as the Savior would. We will then warm the hearts of those who may be suffering in silence. As we meet people with special needs along life's way, we can then make their journey brighter by the things that we say. Christlike communications will help us to develop righteous relationships and ultimately to return to our heavenly home safely. May we treasure the divine gift of communication, and may we use it wisely to build and to assist others on this marvelous journey through mortality.

A Quote by John Ronald Reuel "J. R. R." Tolkien on beginning, journeys, rest, and sleep

The Road goes ever on and on Out from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, Let others follow it who can! Let them a journey new begin, But I at last with weary feet Will turn towards the lighted inn, My evening-rest and sleep to meet.

J.R.R. Tolkien (1892 - 1973)
