And I will also be your light in the wilderness; and I will prepare the way before you, if it so be that ye shall keep commandments; wherefore, inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall be led towards the promised land; and ye shall know that it is by me that ye are led. —1 Nephi 17:13
If you want to give a light to others, you have to glow yourself. —Thomas S. Monson
