But now, O Lord, thou art our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy hand. —Isaiah 64:8
Now suppose I subject myself enough, in the hands of the potter, to be shaped according as he was dictated by the Great Master potter, that rules over all things in heaven and on earth, He would make me into a vessel of honor. —Heber C. Kimball
