Quotes on Strengths

I consider that it is one of the greatest victories for a man to gain, to learn how to control himself.  Show me a man that does control himself and I will show you a safe man; or a man that has prepared himself by this principle is on the road to salvation.  A man that is prepared to lay all that he hath upon the altar, and his life with it, for the Gospel’s sake and the kingdom of God, is in the right way, but the moment that we teach a doctrine that we do not practice we show our weakness.  The moment a man

or a woman becomes angry they show a great weakness, and so it is with any of us when we do anything wrong. — President Wilford Woodruff, Journal of Discourses, 4:98

We all do the best we can.  My best may not be as good as your best, but we all do our best.  (Marjorie Hinckley) — Virginia Pearce, BYU Women’s Conference, April 30, 1998
