“And now, because ye are compelled to be humble blessed are ye; for a man sometimes, if he is compelled to be humble, seeketh repentance; and now surely, whosoever repenteth shall find mercy; and he that findeth mercy and endureth to the end the same shall be saved. ” – Alma 32:13
“His judgments are just; His mercy without limit; His power to compensate beyond any earthly comparison.” – Boyd K. Packer
