Now ye may suppose that this is foolishness in me; but behold I say unto you, that by small and simple things are great things brought to pass; and small means in many instances doth confound the wise. —Alma 37:6
To protect against the cumulative negative effects that are destructive to our spiritual progress, we need to follow the spiritual pattern of the small and simple things. —Dallin H. Oaks
