- Dieter F. Uchtdorf - Today Quotes
No one likes to fail. And we particularly don't like it when others-especially those we love-see us fail. We all want to be respected and esteemed. We want to be champions. But we mortals do not become champions without effort and discipline or without making mistakes.
Our destiny is not determined by the number of times we stumble but by the number of times we rise up, dust ourselves off, and move forward.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
- Jeffrey R. Holland - Today Quotes
There are going to be times in our lives when someone else gets an unexpected blessing or receives some special recognition. May I plead with us not to be hurt--and certainly not to feel envious--when good fortune comes to another person? We are not diminished when someone else is added upon.
Jeffrey R. Holland
- Henri J. M. Nouwen - Today Quotes
In a world that constantly compares people, ranking them as more or less intelligent, more or less attractive, more or less successful, it is not easy to really believe in a [divine] love that does not do the same. When I hear someone praised, it is hard not to think of myself as less praiseworthy; when I read about the goodness and kindness of other people, it is hard not to wonder whether I myself am as good and kind as they; and when I see trophies, rewards, and prizes being handed out to special people, I cannot avoid asking myself why that didn't happen to me.
Henri J. M. Nouwen

I learned that no matter how well prepared you think you are, there are hills on the course.

- M. Russell Ballard - Today Quotes
There is no such thing as "done." There will always be more we can do....
The key, it seems to me, is to know and understand your own capabilities and limitations and then to pace yourself, allocating and prioritizing your time, your attention, and your resources to wisely help others, including your family, in their quest for eternal life.
M. Russell Ballard
