“And now, my brethren, I wish from the inmost part of my heart, yea, with great anxiety even unto pain, that ye would hearken unto my words, and cast off your sins, and not procrastinate the day of your repentance;” – Alma 13:27
“How wise and blessed we would be if we eliminated procrastination and made a decision to serve the Lord and accept His invitation to ‘Come, follow me.’ Then when we have identified our goal, may we have the courage to act upon our decision, confident that added strength and power will be given according to our needs as we follow the Good Shepherd.” – Marvin J. Ashton
