Do your best

Please don't nag yourself with thoughts of failure. Do not set goals far beyond your capacity to achieve. Simply do what you can do, in the best way you know, and the Lord will accept of your effort."
--Gordon B. Hinckley, "Rise to the Stature of the Divine within You," Ensign, Nov. 1989, 94

Salvation is an individual matter

The development of faith in the Lord is an individual matter. Repentance is also an individual matter. Only as an individual can one be baptized and receive the Holy Ghost. Each of us is born individually; likewise, each of us is "born again" individually. Salvation is an individual matter."
--Russell M. Nelson, "Salvation and Exaltation", Ensign May 2008, 7–10

The Book of Mormon

Every Latter-day Saint should make the study of this book a lifetime pursuit. Otherwise, he is placing his soul in jeopardy and neglecting that which could give spiritual and intellectual unity to his whole life."
--President Ezra Taft Benson, May 1988

"Perseverance means to continue in a given course until we have reached a goal or objective, regardless of obstacles, opposition, and other counter influences...Perseverance is a positive, active characteristic...It gives us hope by helping us realize that the righteous suffer no failure except in giving up and no longer trying."
--Joseph B. Wirthlin, "Never Give Up", Ensign, Nov. 1987, 8

Independence and Security

If money is your only hope for independence,
you will never have it. The only real security in
this world is a reserve of
knowledge, experience and ability.

Book of Mormon

"And Joseph Smith, the Prophet, the instrument whom God used to translate this record, testified that 'the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.' (History of the Church, 4:461.)"
--President Ezra Taft Benson, May 1988
