"Okay life's a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, 'cause that's the only chance anybody's got for real happiness."--Paul Varjak (George Peppard) in Breakfast at Tiffany's

"Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained." -C.S. Lewis 

“Choose a companion carefully and prayerfully; and when you are married, be fiercely loyal one to another. Priceless advice comes from a small framed plaque I once saw in the home of an uncle and aunt. It read, “Choose your love; love your choice.” —President Thomas S. Monson 

"A true friend is one who is willing to take us the way we are but is still able to leave us better than he found us." — Marvin J. Ashton

"If we don't have time for masterpiece moments, the very reason we came to earth is being wasted on us." — Cheiko Okazaki,"Being Enough"

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God's kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.” --Mother Teresa

"He cannot help us remember things we have not labored to learn." --David A. Bednar, Act in Doctrine


"Just when all seems to be going right, challenges often come in multiple dowses applied simultaneously. When those trials are not consequences of your disobedience, they are evidence that The Lord feels you are prepared to grow more. He therefore gives you experiences that stimulate growth, understanding, and compassion which polish you for your everlasting benefit. To get you from where you are to where He wants you to be requires a lot of stretching, and that generally entails discomfort and pain." -Richard G Scott 

"Life is perfect for none of us. Rather than being judgmental and critical of each other, may we have the pure love of Christ for our fellow travelers in this journey through life."--Thomas S. Monson

"If our lives are centered on Jesus Christ and His restored gospel, nothing can ever go permanently wrong." — President Howard W. Hunter 

"God is supremely concerned with our motives, and our works count only when they match our intentions. There is no back door into salvation, rerouted around the sacrifice of Christ. Otherwise, the whole earth could gain heaven by good works, and His day on the cross would be pointless." --Jen Hatmaker, in Interrupted: An Adventure in Relearning the Essentials of Faith

"Nothing in the world is worth having or worth doing unless it means effort, pain, difficulty… I have never in my life envied a human being who led an easy life. I have envied a great many people who led difficult lives and led them well."--Theodore Roosevelt

"Happiness consists not of having, but of BEING; not of possessing, but of ENJOYING. It is the warm glow of a heart at PEACE with itself... Man is the creator of his own happiness; it is the aroma of a life lived in HARMONY with high ideals." -William George Jordan

“Everyday brings something beautiful if we are just willing to look up and see it.” –Marjorie Pay Hinckley
