Quote Moment


First of all can I say that President Monson announced that he enjoys musicals just like me. That makes us more alike than people think. Second I would like to share a quote he stated from Music Man, one of his favorite musicals.

"If you pile up to many tomorrows you will have a lot of empty yesterdays."

That is one packed punch.

Alright i also heard another one by C. S. Lewis in Music and the Spoken Word:

"The rule for all of us is perfectly simple. Do not waste time bothering whether youlove’ your neighbor; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love them."

That leaves no room for any one to say they hate someone and you just can't like them, it is always your choice.

Alright and now from one of my favorite musicals Aida(even though i have never seen it):

"You talk as though you've been enslaved, if you don't like your fate change it. You are your own master, there are no shackles on you. So, don't expect any pity or understanding from this humble palace slave!"

Okay so this one is a little out of place but it makes me happy. When you have a black woman shouting this words from her soul, you have no choice but to believe and agree with everything she is saying.

Reags, that was a good post. I really was happy also, when he said he liked musicals. I did know that though, he is often seen at the Hale Center Theater watching plays. Pres. Monson was just rolling one quote on after the other in that speach didn't he? I did write down the quote from Music Man, I feel like that is something I can work on. Hope you liked conference as much as I did! Thanks for your insight!

Great quotes! I also loved Elder Wirthlin's quote about how angry drivers react in traffic: "They react as if you've insulted their honor, their family, their dog, and their ancestors all the way back to Adam..." Haha!!

Reagan, I don't think I am yet worthy to call you "Reags," like everyone else. Maybe one day I will be that chill. But anyway, Conference was great, thanks so much for inviting me. I love the Spirit and Conference and teh Brethern and their quotes. Ditto to what Medicus said, in addition to your post.
