Who Said It…

  • “There can be no happiness if the things that we believe in are different from the things that we do.” -James Clear
  • “When you act badly, you may think you are bad when in truth you’re usually mistaken. You’re just wrong. The challenge is not so much in closing the gap between our actions and our beliefs, rather the challenge is closing the gap between our actions and the truth. That’s the challenge.” –Elder Lawrence E. Corbridge
  • “I hope that everyone becomes rich and famous so they can realize that’s not it.” -Jim Carey
  • “Here’s the grand truth. While the world insists that power, possessions, popularity, and pleasures of the flesh bring happiness, they do not. They cannot. What they do produce is nothing but a hollow substitute for the blessed and happy state of those that keep the commandments of God.” –Russell M. Nelson
  • “Let’s start with a test. Do you have any opinions that you would be reluctant to express in front of a group of your peers? If the answer is no, you might want to stop and think about that. If everything you believe is something you’re supposed to believe, could that possibly be a coincidence? Odds are it isn’t. Odds are, you just think whatever you’re told.” -Paul Graham
  • “Overcoming the world is not an event that happens in a day or two. It happens over a lifetime as we repeatedly embrace the doctrine of Christ. We cultivate faith in Jesus Christ by repenting daily and keeping covenants that endow us with power. We stay on the covenant path and are blessed with spiritual strength, personal revelation, increasing faith, and the ministering of angels. Living the doctrine of Christ can produce the most powerful virtuous cycle, creating spiritual momentum in our lives.” –Russell M. Nelson
