Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. —Psalm 51:10
Rather than seeking ease, we must plant, cultivate, and nourish within ourselves the seeds that will enable us to withstand the winds and heat of temptation, sin, and evil and that will help us live successful, happy, and pure lives. —Joseph B. Wirthlin
