A couple of good quotes from Ward Conference

As is often the case, I’m late in posting things, but as they say, better late than never.

Our Ward Conference was last Fall (September I think) and I made note of a couple good quotes that I figured I’d share.


The primary kids sang “I Know That My Savior Loves Me” and one of the lines is:

I did not touch Him or sit on His knee,
Yet, Jesus is real to me.

What a beautiful thing to have the kids sing. I’m sure very few of them grasp the seriousness and beauty of what they are saying, but I still love the fact that my kids sing it. Hopefully I can help Jesus become even more real to them.


Someone shared a phrase that President Monson has shared many times:

You can’t be right by doing wrong and you can’t be wrong by doing right

It is a pretty simple phrase, but I’d have a pretty hard time understanding how anyone could disagree with it


Someone shared the quote “Don’t let the things that matter most suffer because of the things that matter least.” I liked the sound of it, and looked online for who said it. It was actually a German writer and scholar named Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (28 August 1749 – 22 March 1832) who said:

Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least

This kind of goes along with my post on using our time wisely from a couple of weeks ago. We do need to focus on what matters most!

Time Quotations

I have a friend who is really into quotations. In fact, he even self-published a book of quotes. I’m not really into that sort of thing, but I do appreciate a good thought-provoking quote. The other day I saw on Digg a link to some good quotes that have to do with time. You can visit the site to see them all, but a sample is below:

  • There is never enough time to do everything, but there is always enough time to do the most important thing.
  • Half our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time we have rushed through life trying to save.
  • Time you enjoyed wasting is not wasted time.
