Who is…

  • Paul Harvey (who received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2005 people!)
  • Henry B. Eyring-Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints)
  • Dieter F. Uchtdorf-Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ (Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints)

Who said it…

  • When Robert Kennedy made a tribute speech after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, he said,

“He (J. F. K.) often quoted from Robert Frost – and said it applied to himself – but we could apply it to the Democratic Party and to all of us as individuals: ‘The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.”

  • New Testament Luke 5:5

“Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net.”

  • Dieter Uchtdorf quote on creating:

The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before…Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty…”

“There’s no ‘normal life’ Wyatt.  It’s just life.  Get on with it.”

“Can’t stop the spirits when they need you, This life is more than just a read through.”

You ought to find something that you love so much that when you don’t have to think about anything, that’s what you think about.’”
