Standing on Higher Ground

"You cannot lift another soul until you are standing on higher ground than he is. You must be sure, if you would rescue the man, that you yourself are setting the example of what you would have him be. You cannot light a fire in another soul unless it is burning in your own soul."
--Harold B. Lee, "Stand Ye in Holy Places", Ensign, July 1973, 121
(I remember when he said this in General Conference. He used the example of Peter healing the lame man at the temple. I have always loved this quote. JHD)
