"There is no neutral area between good and evil. If you are on the devil's turf, get off it as fast as you can. As strong as Nephi was, I can't forget his humble prayer: 'O Lord, wilt thou... make me that I may shake at the appearance of sin?' (2 Ne. 4:31)." - W. Eugene Hansen, "Spiritual Shepherds," Ensign, May 1996, p. 39

"Isn't that true? Aren't there certain basic principles and truths that we must learn if we are to get along in this life and be happy? And we either learn them with joy by doing what's right, or we learn them with sorrow or through experiences that bring sorrow. One cannot break God's commandments and be happy. We should remember the scripture referred to earlier during this conference, 'Wickedness never was happiness' (Alma 41:10)." - W. Eugene Hansen, "The Search for Happiness," Ensign, November 1993, p. 83

Topic: Refining Qualities

"May I offer four suggestions to help focus on principles that will make us kinder, gentler, more harmonious, and loving persons.

"First, be considerate....

"Second, be complimentary.... Third, be charitable....

"Fourth, be grateful." - W. Eugene Hansen, "Love," Ensign (CR), November 1989, p.23
