“Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God” –
2 Corinthians 3:5
“Man cannot be an agent unto himself if he is not self-reliant. Herein we see that independence and self-reliance are critical keys to our spiritual growth. Whenever we get into a situation which threatens our self-reliance, we will find our freedom threatened as well. If we increase our dependence, we will find an immediate decrease in our freedom to act.” – Marion G. Romney
