"The family proclamation helps us understand much of the love the Savior referred to when He told us we must 'love one another.' (John 13:34) He gave us the supreme example of love when He declared, 'Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.' (John 15:13) He later atoned for all our sins and finally gave His life for all of us.

"We can lay down our lives for those we love not by physically dying for them but rather by living for them—giving of our time; always being present in their lives; serving them; being courteous, affectionate, and showing true love for those of our family and to all men—as the Savior taught." - Claudio R. M. Costa, "Don't Leave for Tomorrow What You Can Do Today," General Conference, 7 October 2007

“I have learned much from the scriptures about success. It is wonderful to read about the journey of Lehi and his family to the promised land. Of Lehi’s older sons, Nephi and Sam, through their faithfulness to the Lord, charted their course for true success. For them, being successful meant being faithful in following the Lord’s commandments. Through their example the lives of millions of people have been blessed to this date. And because of their obedience, many people have followed the path of truth and righteousness, striving to be worthy of the Spirit of the Lord in their lives.” - Claudio R. M. Costa, “Priceless Principles for Success,” Ensign (CR), November 1994, p. 27

"We are told that 'surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets' (Amos 3:7). We learn from this scripture that the Lord will reveal to His prophets absolutely anything that He feels is necessary to communicate to us. He will reveal His will to us, and He will instruct us through His prophets." - Claudio R. M. Costa, "Obedience to the Prophets," Ensign (CR) October 2010

The living prophet is receiving specific revelations for us. I can remember many times when I have been present to hear one of the servants of the Lord speak about a specific thing for a city or country. I remember at least three of the living prophets, seers, and revelators who have spoken about my country, Brazil. One of these servants said that Brazil would become a great economy in the world and be free of inflation. At the time, we had two-digit inflation every month. It was difficult for many people to believe what the prophet said, but I believed. Brazil has had about 5 percent inflation each year for many consecutive years now. Brazil has become eighth in the world economy, and the country is doing great! - Claudio R. M. Costa, "Obedience to the Prophets," Ensign (CR) November 2010

I believe that starting a tradition of telling the stories of Jesus to our children and families is a very special way to keep the Sabbath day holy in our homes. - Claudio R. M. Costa, “That They Do Always Remember Him,” Ensign (CR) November 2015
