"...[O]ur testimonies must be built upon a solid foundation of faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ. Even though we may enjoy the fellowship of the Saints and may have strong feelings about the inspired programs of the Church, we must remember that we have only one sure anchor for our souls." Joseph B. Wirthlin, "Finding Peace in Our Lives," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1995], p. 126

"Think what a contribution selfish people of great talent could have made if their commitments had been made to Jesus Christ instead of to themselves! We will do better in every aspect of our lives if we commit to a God in whose life we see miracles, power over disease and death; one who, as a glorified, resurrected being, said to John, his beloved disciple, 'I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.' (Rev. 1:18Rev. 1:18.)" Vaughn J. Featherstone, "Commitment," [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1982], p. 94

"Everyone will be tempered and tried. The sun will rise on the evil as well as the good, and the rains will descend on the just as well as the unjust. (Matthew 5:45) But a life built on a firm foundation will endure." Jeffrey R. Holland, "However Long and Hard the Road," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1985], p. 24

"Mostly, brothers and sisters, we become the victims of our own wrong desires. Moreover, we live in an age when many simply refuse to feel responsible for themselves. Thus, a crystal-clear understanding of the doctrines pertaining to desire is so vital because of the spreading effluent oozing out of so many unjustified excuses by so many. This is like a sludge which is sweeping society along toward 'the gulf of misery and endless wo.' (Hel. 5:12). Feeding the same flow is the selfish philosophy of 'no fault,' which is replacing the meek and apologetic 'my fault.' (Ensign, November 1996, p. 21)" "The Neal A. Maxwell Quote Book," [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1997], p. 78

(5/31/03)
"If we build something that we want to last forever, it is imperative to have a firm foundation. To make it secure, we must excavate down to bedrock. This takes time and effort, perseverance, and exactness, but it is requisite to permanency. Thus it is with building our lives upon the rock of Christ. We must follow him, for he has taught us how to build. We cannot take the easy path, hoping to short-circuit laws, and expect to achieve anything permanent and eternal. Building our Christlike life requires active faith, diligence, heed, and endurance." Robert E. Wells, "The Mount and the Master," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1991], p. 211
