“Behold, now it is called today until the coming of the Son of Man, and verily it is a day of sacrifice.” —Doctrine & Covenants 64:23
“If we were told we had a short time to live, we too might plead for more days of life in the name of things we should have done or done differently. Regardless of the time the Lord, in His wisdom, determines to grant each of us, of one thing we can be sure: we all have a “today” to live, and the key to making our day successful is to be willing to sacrifice.” —Taylor G. Godoy
