Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“What we love determines what we seek. What we seek determines what we think and do. What we think and do determines who we are — and who we will become.”

“In the end, the number of prayers we say may contribute to our happiness, but the number of prayers we answer may be of even greater importance.”
