“O, remember, my son, and learn wisdom in thy youth; yea, learn in thy youth to keep the commandments of God.” –
“Now is the time, brethren, when in every action we take, in every place we go, with every Latter-day Saint young person we meet, we need to have an increased awareness of the need for strengthening, nurturing, and being an influence for good in their lives.” – Ronald A. Rasband
