"How are we supposed to act when we are offended, misunderstood, unfairly or unkindly treated, or sinned against?  What are we supposed to do if we are hurt by those we love, or passed over for promotion, or are falsely accused, or have our motives unfairly assailed?  Do we fight back?  Do we send in an ever-larger battalion?  Do we revert to an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, or, as Tevye says in Fiddler on the Roof, do we come to the realization that this finally leaves us blind and toothless?"

"Every home has both body and spirit.  You may have a beautiful house with all the decorations that  modern art can give or wealth bestow.  You may have all the outward forms that will please the eye and yet not have a home.  It is not home without love.  It may be a hovel, a log hut, a tent, a wickiup, if you have the right spirit within, the true love of Christ, and love for one another...you have the true life of the home that (we) build and are trying to establish."

David O. McKay, CR 1907, p. 63
