"This (meekness) is a very special form of rest. It surely includes the rest
resulting from the shedding of certain needless burdens: fatiguing insincerity,
exhausting hypocrisy, and the strength-sapping quest for recognition, praise,
and power. Those of us who fall short, in one way or another, often do so
because we carry such unnecessary and heavy baggage."
"Meekness also protects us from the fatigue of being easily offended. There are so many just waiting to be offended. They are so alerted to the possibility that they will not be treated fairly, they almost invite the verification of their expectation! The meek, not on such a fatiguing alert, find rest from this form of fatigue."
Neal A. Maxwell, BYU Dev., Oct. 21, 1986
