1 Marion G. Romney “…there were two cardinal principles: (1) consecration and (2) stewardship…one consecrated all his possessions to the Church…Having thus voluntarily divested himself of title to all his property, the consecrator received from the Church a stewardship by a like conveyance. This stewardship could be more or less than his original consecration, the object being to make ‘every man equal according to his family, according to his circumstances and his wants and needs’ (D&C 51:3). This procedure preserved in every man the right to private ownership and management of his property. At his own option he could alienate it or keep it and operate it and pass it on to his heirs…He consecrated to the Church the surplus he produced above the needs and wants of his family. This surplus went into a storehouse from which stewardships were given to others and from which the needs of the poor were supplied.” (Conference Report, Apr. 1966, pp )

2 Russell M. Nelson “Throughout the world, however, strident voices are engaged in divisive disputation and name-calling. Often demeaning nicknames are added to - or even substituted for - given names. Unfortunately, terms of derision obscure the true identity of children of the covenant…When the Nephites were truly righteous, they avoided divisive nicknames…’There were no…Lamanites, nor any manner of -ites; but they were in one, the children of Christ, and heirs to the kingdom of God’ (4 Nephi 1:17). That lesson from history suggests that we also delete from our personal vocabularies names that segregate…” (Ensign, May 1995, p. 34)

3 Joseph Smith “Happiness is the object and design of our existence; and it will be the end thereof, if we pursue the path that leads to it; and this path is virtue, uprightness, faithfulness, holiness, and keeping all the commandments of God.” (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 255)

4 Spencer W. Kimball Three ways to establish Zion today: 1)Eliminate selfishness (the need for power and gain) 2)Work in harmony and cooperate with others 3)Sacrifice and give our best to our callings (Conference Report, Apr. 1978)

5 Gordon B. Hinckley “It was the subject of the proclamation on the family that framed the conversation President Hinckley and Elder Neal A. Maxwell had in early November 1995 with US President Bill Clinton during a visit to the White House. ‘It is our feeling that if you’re going to fix the nation; you need to start by fixing families. That’s the place to begin,’ President Hinckley told the chief executive.” (Go Forward with Faith, p. 527)

6 Brigham Young “We are under the necessity of assembling here from Sabbath to Sabbath, and in ward meetings, and besides, have to call our solemn assemblies, to teach, talk, pray, sing, and exhort. What for? To keep us in remembrance of our God and our holy religion. Is this custom necessary? Yes, because we are so liable to forget - so prone to wander, that we need to have the Gospel sounded in our ears as much as once, twice, or thrice a week, or, behold, we will turn again to our idols.” (Discourses of Brigham Young, p. 165)
