61: Your mind is a cupboard, and you stock the shelves.Constant Truths for Changing Times, April 2005

62: Charity is having patience with someone who has let us down. It is resisting the impulse to become offended easily. It is accepting weaknesses and shortcomings.

It is resisting the impulse to categorize others.Charity Never Faileth, October 2010

63: It’s in the doing, not just the thinking, that we accomplish our goal. A Royal Priesthood, October 2007

64: Perhaps most significant of all classrooms is the classroom of the home. It is in the home that we form our attitudes, our deeply held beliefs.

65: Blame keeps wounds open. Only forgiveness heals.Love – the Essence of the Gospel, April 2014

When true values and basic virtues undergird the families of society, hope will conquer despair, and faith will triumph over doubt.Dedication Day, October 2000

May we love one another and always look for the best in people. May we do our best in all that we do. – Principles from Prophets, September 2009

73: Pitied is the hand that sins. Envied is the hand that paints. Honored is the hand that builds. Appreciated is the hand that helps. Respected is the hand that serves. Adored is the hand that saves—even the hand of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Redeemer of all mankind. With that hand he knocks upon the door of our understanding.Hands, October 1972

74: Today, the challenge which we face and must meet is not that we should go forth on the battlefield of war and lay down our lives. Rather, it is that we, on the battlefield of life, so live and serve that our lives and actions reflect a true love of God, of His Son, Jesus Christ, and of our fellowmen.Those Who Love Jesus, October 1985

78: Miracles are everywhere to be found when the priesthood is understood, its power is honored and used properly, and faith is exerted.Willing and Worthy to Serve, April 2012

79: Who can measure a mother’s grief? Who can probe a mother’s love? Who can comprehend in its entirety the lofty role of a mother? With perfect trust in God, she walks, her hand in his, into the valley of the shadow of death that you and I might come forth unto life.“Behold They Mother”, October 1973

80: Each of us has come to this earth with all the tools necessary to make correct choices.The Three Rs of Choice, October 2010

87: Home teaching is more than a mechanical visit once per month. Ours is the responsibility to teach, to inspire, to motivate, and where we visit those who are not active, to bring to activity and to eventual exaltation the sons and daughters of God.True Shepherds, October 2013

88: He who created us and who loves us perfectly knows just how we need to live our lives in order to obtain the greatest happiness possible.Keep the Commandments, October 2015

89: We discover he is more than the babe in Bethlehem, more than the carpenter’s son, more than the greatest teacher ever to live. We come to know him as the Son of God. He never fashioned a statue, painted a picture, wrote a poem, or led an army. He never wore a crown or held a scepter or threw around his shoulder a purple robe. His forgiveness was unbounded, his patience inexhaustible, his courage without limit. Jesus changed men. He changed their habits, their opinions, their ambitions. He changed their tempers, their dispositions, their natures. He changed men’s hearts.The Paths Jesus Walked, April 1974
