“arise and shine forth, that [our] light may be a standard for the nations.” –
“In an extremely challenging world, that is what I see young women and women of this Church doing. They are an influence for good. They are virtuous and exemplary, intelligent and industrious. They are making a difference because they are different. They are acting well their part.” – Dallin H. Oaks
