A Quote by George Albert Smith on affliction, blessings, children, desires, duty, earth, enemies, faith, fatherhood, feeling, flattery, force, friendship, good, happiness, idealism, inspiration, jealousy, joy, life, love, mankind, needs, people, privileg

A PERSONAL CREED I would be a friend to the friendless and find joy in ministering to the needs of the poor. I would visit the sick and afflicted and inspire in them a desire for faith to be healed. I would teach the truth to the understanding and blessing of all mankind. I would seek out the erring one and try to win him back to a righteous and a happy life. I would not seek to force people to live up to my ideals, but rather love them into doing the thing that is right. I would live with the masses and help to solve their problems that their earth life may be happy. I would avoid the publicity of high positions and discourage flattery of thoughtless friends. I would not knowingly wound the feeling of any, not even one who may have wronged me, but would seek to do him good and make him my friend. I would overcome the tendency to selfishness and jealousy and rejoice in the successes of all the children of my Heavenly Father. I would not be an enemy to any living soul. Knowing that the Redeemer of mankind has offered to the world the only plan that will fully develop us and make us happy here and hereafter, I feel it not only a duty, but also a blessed privilege to disseminate the truth.

George Smith (1870 - 1951)

A Quote by Albert Einstein on belief, body, life, luxury, mind, possessions, publicity, simplicity, and success

Possessions, outward success, publicity, luxury - to me these have always been contemptible. I believe that a simple and unassuming manner of life is best for every one, best both for the body and the mind.

Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
