“We should certainly count our blessings, but we should also make our blessings count.”
Neal A. Maxwell

“The laughter of the world is merely loneliness pathetically trying to reassure itself.”
Neal A. Maxwell, The Neal A. Maxwell Quote Book

“Patience is tied very closely to faith in our Heavenly Father. Actually, when we are unduly impatient, we are suggesting that we know what is best—better than does God. Or, at least, we are asserting that our timetable is better than His. We can grow in faith only if we are willing to wait patiently for God's purposes and patterns to unfold in our lives, on His timetable.”
Neal A. Maxwell
