Sinking Ship

Return to Main Margie's Messages Home Page (Full List of Topics)

Quoted by Boyd K. Packer

All the water in the world,
However hard it tried,
Could never sink the smallest ship
Unless it [gets] inside.

And all the evil in the world,
The blackest kind of sin,
Can never hurt you the least bit
Unless you let it in.
