Quotes, Thoughts and Scriptures

by Cindy R. Williams

Rise to Your Potential
"A gracious woman retaineth honour. - Proverbs 11:16
I feel to invite every woman everywhere to rise to the great potential within you. I do not ask that you reach beyond your capacity. I hope you will not nag yourselves with thoughts of failure. I hope you will not try to set goals far beyond your capacity to achieve. I hope you will simply do what you can do in the best way you know. If you do so, you will witness miracles come to pass."
~Gordon B. Hinckley

"Life is not getting and accumulating. It is giving and becoming"
~Elder Lance B. Wickman, LDS Conference - April 2008

"God hath not given us the spirit of fear; bot of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." 
~2 Timothy 1:7

"The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender.
There are enough women who are course; we need women who are kind.
there are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined.
We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith.
We have enough greed' we need more goodness.
We have enough vanity; we need more virtue.
We have enough popularity; we need more purity."
~Margaret D. Nadauld - Former Young Women General President

". . . serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them . . ."  
~1 Kings 12:7

"When we honestly ask which persons in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not-curing, not-healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness . . . makes it clear that whatever happens in the external world, being present to each other is what really maters." 
~Henri F. M. Nouwen
