Quotes from Gordon B. Hinckley

“Life is to be enjoyed, not endured” 

“Try a little harder to be a little better.” 

“True love is not so much a matter of romance as it is a matter of anxious concern for the well-being of one's companion.” 

“If Life Gets Too Hard To Stand, Kneel.”

“Generally speaking, the most miserable people I know are those who are obsessed with themselves; the happiest people I know are those who lose themselves in the service of others...By and large, I have come to see that if we complain about life, it is because we are thinking only of ourselves.” 

“You have not failed until you quit trying.” 

 “It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. I say that to myself every morning. It all works out in the end. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future. The Lord will not forsake us. He will not forsake us. If we will put our trust in Him, if we will pray to Him, if we will live worthy of His blessings, He will hear our prayers.” 

“Stop seeking out the storms and enjoy more fully the sunlight.” 

“Let us never forget to pray. God lives. He is near. He is real. He is not only aware of us but cares for us. He is our Father. He is accessible to all who will seek Him.” 

“Cultivate an attitude of happiness. Cultivate a spirit of optimism. Walk with faith, rejoicing in the beauties of nature, in the goodness of those you love, in the testimony which you carry in your heart concerning things divine.” 

“Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great purpose in heart.”

“Get on your knees and pray, then get on your feet and work.”
