There was a lot of great stuff in this book. It seemed to jump into the plot - which was fine, but I would have liked a bit more worldbuilding at the start. I am a spoiled fantasy fan.

Of Souls, Symbols, and Sacraments by Jeffrey R. Holland
"Just read this in preparation for a YW lesson on chastity. His explanation of "why" is better than any I've ever heard. It's a quick read - only about 40 pages. It's a must read for all."

“I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo.
"So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”

“To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never to forget.”
