work (Gordon B. Hinckley)

“The best antidote I know for worry is work. The best cure for weariness is the challenge of helping someone who is even more tired. One of the great ironies of life is this: He or she who serves almost always benefits more than he or she who is served.”


Gordon B. Hinckley

all blessings to the faithful (Lorenzo Snow)

“There is no Latter day Saint who dies after having lived a faithful life who will lose anything because of having failed to do certain things when opportunities were not furnished him or her. In other words, if a young man or a young woman has no opportunity of getting married, and they live faithful lives up to the time of their death, they will have all the blessings, exaltation, and glory that any man or woman will have who had this opportunity and improved it. That is sure and positive.” 

(The Teachings of Lorenzo Snow, ed. Clyde J. Williams [1984], 138.)

The blessings of service (Lorenzo Snow)

“When you find yourselves a little gloomy, look around you and find somebody that is in a worse plight than yourself; go to him and find out what the trouble is, then try to remove it with the wisdom which the Lord bestows upon you; and the first thing you know, your gloom is gone, you feel light, the Spirit of the Lord is upon you, and everything seems illuminated.” 

(Conference Report, Apr. 1899, 2–3.)

He is ready when we are (Joseph Smith)

When we understand the character of God and know how to come to him, he begins to unfold the heavens to us and to tell us all about it. When we are ready to come to Him, He is ready to come to us. Joseph Smith, King Follett Discourse, Journal of Discoures 6:5
