These were two great quotes from a few different RS lessons that I wanted to remember:
"The past is to be learned from but not lived in. We look back to claim
the embers from glowing experiences but not the ashes. And when we
have learned what we need to learn and have brought with us the best
that we have experienced, then we look ahead and remember that faith is
always pointed toward the future."
- Elder Jeffrey R. Holland
"Good timber does not grow with ease, the stronger wind, the
stronger trees. The further sky, the greater length. The more the
storm, the more the strength. By sun and cold, by rain and snow, in
trees and men good timbers grow."
- Douglas Malloch
