“Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.”
Boyd K. Packer

“We live in a day when the adversary stresses on every hand the philosophy of instant gratification. We seem to demand instant everything, including instant solutions to our problems. . .It was meant to be that life would be a challenge. To suffer some anxiety, some depression, some disappointment, even some failure is normal.”
Boyd K. Packer

“He who conquers others is strong; he who conquers himself is mighty" - Lao-tsu
One who can control his thoughts has conquered himself.”
