“And charity suffereth long, and is kind, and envieth not, and is not puffed up, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil, and rejoiceth not in iniquity but rejoiceth in the truth, beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.” – Moroni 7:45
“Providing service and extending charity toward others helps us overcome our own difficulties and makes them seem less challenging.” – Silvia H. Allred
