Who said it…

  • “Kindness is the essence of greatness and the fundamental characteristic of the noblest men and women I have known.  Kindness is a passport that opens doors and fashions friends.  It softens hearts and molds relationships that can last lifetimes…Kind words not only lift our spirits in the moment they are given, but they can linger with us over the years.” –Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin 
  • “Many years ago, I was first counselor to a district president in the eastern United States. More than once, as we were driving to our little branches, he said to me, ‘Hal, when you meet someone, treat them as if they were in serious trouble, and you will be right more than half the time.’ Not only was he right, but I have learned over the years that he was too low in his estimate.” –President Henry B. Eyring “Try, Try, Try”
  • I met a stranger in the night,
    Whose lamp had ceased to shine;
    I paused and let him light
    His lamp from mine.
    A tempest sprang up later on,
    And shook the world about,
    And when the wind was gone,
    My lamp was out.
    But back came to me the stranger—
    His lamp was glowing fine;
    He held the precious flame
    And lighted mine.
    – Lon Woodrum
