And whatsoever they shall speak when moved upon by the Holy Ghost shall be scripture, shall be the will of the Lord, shall be the mind of the Lord, shall be the word of the Lord, shall be the voice of the Lord, and the power of God unto salvation.
(D&C 68:4)

Most of us have collections of sayings we live by.... Whenever words fly up at me from the printed page as I read, I intercept them instantly, knowing they are for me. I turn them over carefully in my mind and cling to them hard.
  Ray Stannard Backer, pseudonym: David Grayson (1870-1946) US author, biographer

Topic: Control Our Emotions

Yes, Jesus was "tempted as we are in all things" yet He was without sin (see Hebrews 4:15). Although He was moved by human emotions throughout His life, there was an essential difference between His expression of them and ours. His emotions were always under control. Frequently ours are uncontrolled and end in bitterness that endangers our own souls. He could hate sin yet have compassion on the sinner. He was angered at the narrowness and bigotry that closed men's minds to truth, yet He was patient in His teachings. He loved all mankind and jealously shepherded them against the evils of the day. - Harold B. Lee, "The Teachings of Harold B. Lee," edited by Clyde J. Williams, p. 8

Personality can open doors, but only character can keep them open. - Elmer G. Letterman
