Thoughtful Thursday

  • "Just as doubt, despair, and desensitization go together, so do faith, hope, and charity. The latter, however, must be carefully and constantly nurtured, whereas despair, like dandelions, needs so little encouragement to sprout and spread. Despair comes so naturally to the natural man!" (Neal A. Maxwell, Ensign, Nov 1994, 34).

  • "To conquer one's self is success" (Hylan Harper, as stated last Sunday).
  • "God gave us memories that we might have June roses in the December of our lives" (James Barrie, see Laurence J. Peter, comp., Peter’s Quotations: Ideas for Our Time (1977), 335).

  • "Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be a content" (Philipians 4:11).

  • "Me love cookies!" (Cookie Monster).
