“Absence of gratitude is the mark of the
narrow, uneducated mind. It bespeaks a lack of knowledge and the ignorance
of self-sufficiency. It expresses itself in ugly egotism and frequently in
wanton mischief... Where there is appreciation, there is courtesy, there is
concern for the rights and property of others.
Without it there is arrogance and evil."
- Gordon B. Hinckley, October, 1964
(23 June 1910 - 27 Jan 2008)

“Living in thanksgiving daily is a habit
that will enrich our lives and the lives of those we love...Those who live
in thanksgiving daily have a way of opening their eyes and seeing the
wonders and beauties of this world as though seeing them for the first

don’t nag yourselves with thoughts of failure. Do not set goals far beyond your
capacity to achieve. Simply do what you can do, in the best way you know how,
and the Lord will accept your effort.”
