"chosen" (Maxwell)

The designation "chosen", of course, is not just status; it confers great responsibilities upon those chosen to reach their fellowmen.  God gives the picks and shovels to those "chosen" because they are willing to go to work and get callouses on their hands.  They may not be the best or most capable, but they are the most available.

Elder Neal A. Maxwell (Deposition of a Disciple, p. 54)

It makes sense to me that the Lord would chose out of the world those who are (or who could become) different from the world and, therefore, could lead the world to a different outcome.  We must be different in order to make a difference.

Elder Neal A. Maxwell (Deposition of a Disciple, p. 54)
