Wherefore, the Lord God gave unto man that he should act for himself. Wherefore, man could not act for himself save it should be that he was enticed by the one or the other. —2 Nephi 2:16
We have to forgo some good things in order to choose other that are better or best because they develop faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and strengthen our families. —Dallin H. Oaks
