the all time favorite quotes {pt. 3}

"Yes, there will be stress and sorrow in life, and we will not always get the answer from Heaven we prefer, but God will always give us the answer we need- and with it He will give both strength and spiritual solace in all our times of trouble." --Jeffrey R. Holland, from the dust jacket of "For Times of Trouble"

“Material possessions and honors of the world do not endure. But your union as wife, husband, and family can. No sacrifice is too great to have the blessings of an eternal marriage. By making and keeping sacred temple covenants, we evidence our love for God, for our companion, and our real regard for our posterity—even those yet unborn. Our family is the focus of our greatest work and joy in this life; so will it be throughout all eternity.” –-Russell M. Nelson  


“This generation has lost the true meaning of romance. There are so many songs that disrespect women. You can’t treat the woman you love as a piece of meat. You should treat your love like a princess. Give her love songs, something with real meaning. Maybe I’m old fashioned, but to respect the woman you love should be a priority.” --Tom Hiddleston


"The only thing that stands between you and your dream is the will to try and the belief that it is actually possible." --Joel Brown.


"When your heart speaks, take good notes." --Judith Campbell


"To ease another's heartache is to forget one's own." --Abraham Lincoln

"Trust God and believe in good things to come." --Jeffrey R. Holland
"You can't build a reputation on what you're going to do." -- Henry Ford
"Live in the moment and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering." --Fanny Crosby

"Be of good courage. The Lord will strengthen thy heart." --Jeffrey R. Holland, "For Times of Trouble"


"When things get difficult, whatever you do, don't ease up-don't ease up on your efforts to seek after me, to communicate with me, to learn about me. Because that is what will get you through." --What our Heavenly Father would say to us, "Heavenly Father" from Sheri Dew
 
"You cannot find peace by avoiding life." --Virginia Woolf


"I don’t want to look like everyone else. I don’t have perfect teeth, I’m not stick thin. I want to be the person who looks great in her body and can say that she doesn't want to change anything."  --Emma Watson


"We're so arrogant, aren't we? So afraid of age, we do everything we can to prevent it. We don't realize what a privilege it is to grow old with someone. Someone who doesn't drive you to commit murder or doesn't humiliate you beyond repair." --Daniel (Harry Connick, Jr.), in P.S. I Love You

“Confidence is the only key. I know a lot of people who aren’t traditionally ‘beautiful’ — not symmetrical or perfect-bodied or perfect-skinned. But none of that matters because all that shines through is their confidence, humor and comfort with themselves. I can’t think of any better representation of beauty than someone who is unafraid to be herself." --Emma Stone

“The future of this world has long been declared; the final outcome between good and evil is already known. There is absolutely no question as to who wins because the victory has already been posted on the scoreboard. The only really strange thing in all of this is that we are still down here on the field trying to decide which team’s jersey we want to wear!" --Jeffrey R. Holland

"As a pilot, I have touched the skies. As a church member, I have felt heaven's embrace." --Dieter F. Uchtdorf   


"Some people are beautiful. Not in looks. Not in what they say. Just in what they are." --Markus Zusak 

"Our memories of the ocean will linger on long after our footprints in the sand are gone"--Anonymous

"...The challenges you face, the growth experiences you encounter, are intended to be temporary scenes played out on the stage of a life of continuing peace and happiness. Sadness, heartache, and disappointment are events in life. It is not intended that they be the substance of life. I do not minimize how hard some of these events can be. When the lesson you are to learn is very important, trials can extend over a long period of time,but they should not be allowed to become the confining focus of everything you do. Your life can and should be wondrously rewarding." --Richard G. Scott, The Atonement Can Secure Your Peace and Happiness


“I know of no other place where happiness abides more securely than in the home. It is possible to make home a bit of heaven. Indeed, I picture heaven as a continuation of the ideal home.” --David O. McKay


“Perhaps the greatest charity comes when we are kind to each other, when we don’t judge or categorize someone else, when we simply give each other the benefit of the doubt or remain quiet. Charity is accepting someone’s differences, weaknesses, and shortcomings; having patience with someone who has let us down; or resisting the impulse to become offended when someone doesn’t handle something the way we might have hoped. Charity is refusing to take advantage of another’s weakness and being willing to forgive someone who has hurt us. Charity is expecting the best of each other.” --Marvin J. Ashton

“A man who is full of the love of God is not content with blessing his family only, but thinks about all of the people in the world, anxious to bless the whole human race.” --Joseph Smith, Jr.

"My greatest victory has been to be able to live with myself, to accept my shortcomings. I’m a long way from the human being I’d like to be, but I’ve decided I’m not so bad after all." — Audrey Hepburn
