Food For Thought

Everyone knows that weeds eat out the life of the garden and of the productive fields. The gardener and farmer alike each has to keep the weeding process alive. It’s like that in the building and developing of character. No one knows our own faults and tendencies better than we do ourselves, so that it is up to each one of us to keep the weeds out, and to keep all growth vigorous and fruitful. - George Matthew Adams

There is no royal road to any learning, no matter what it is. There is no royal road to any righteous living, no matter who you are or what you are. There is no royal road to anything that is worthwhile. Nothing that is deserving of earning or of cherishing comes except through hard work. - J. Reuben Clark

It is not innate in the human character to dwell deeply in the depths of any subject by inquiring into it, researching, and truly mastering all facets of the subject. Especially now, in our times, society willingly accepts mediocrity and appearances rather than the actuality of excellence. - Samuel Avital
