our goals (Oaks)

“We may have to struggle to achieve our goals, but our struggles may yield as much growth as our learning. The strengths we develop in overcoming challenges will be with us in the eternities to come.” Elder Dallin H. Oaks -“Learning and Latter-day Saints,” Ensign, Apr. 2009, 27

Don't fritter away your life (Monson)

"It is necessary to prepare, to plan, so that we don't fritter away our lives. Without a goal, there can be no real success. The best definition of success I have ever found goes something like this: Success is the progressive realization of a worthy ideal. Someone has said the trouble with not having a goal is that you can spend your life running up and down the field and never crossing the goal line." Thomas S. Monson ,  "Three Gates Only You Can Open," New Era, Aug. 2008, 2, 4
