The LDS Daily WOOL - Perfect Balance

“So much energy is wasted in feelings of hatred and revenge,

but when we can seek to set things right cheerfully,

‘we stand still, with the utmost assurance,

to see the salvation of God,

and for his arm to be revealed’ (D&C 123:17).

When we harbor mean-spirited feelings of retribution, we are on the devil's turf; but when we seek redress cheerfully, the Lord is on our side.”

- Spencer J. Condie, “In Perfect Balance,” p. 168

- Cato the Elder (234BC - 149BC)

“You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences.” ~Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
