A Quote by G. E. Bishop on difficulty, life, success, temptation, and weapons

Mark, young man, the line you succeed in will be of your own finding. The Davids in life do not slay the Goliaths of difficulty and temptation in another's armor, even though it be the king's, but with their own self-made weapons, though they be nothing more formidable than a sling and a pebble.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on christ, devil, fatherhood, guidance, jesus, strength, temptation, and words

I counsel you, in the words of Jesus Christ, to "watch and pray I always lest ye enter into temptation; for Satan desireth to have you, that he may sift you as wheat" (3 Nephi 18:18). If you will earnestly seek guidance from your Heavenly Father, morning and evening, you will be given the strength to shun any temptation.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on justice and temptation

When you are tempted to look elsewhere for greener pastures, just remember someone else is probably looking at yours. And if another pasture looks greener, perhaps it is getting better care and attention. Grass is always greener . . . where it is watered.

A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on character, compromise, honesty, honor, lies, strength, and temptation

Have you ever asked yourself why one person is honorable and another dishonorable; why one is honest, another dishonest; why one is moral, another immoral? Most individuals do not intend to be dishonest, dishonorable, or immoral. They seem to allow their characters to erode by a series of rationalizations, lies, and compromises. Then when grave temptation presents itself, they haven't the strength of character to do what they know to be right.
