Sometimes all you need is a little something to flip your attitude around, to remind you of where you want to go. Here are a few quotes that have meant a lot to me at just the right time. Not all are LDS, but I think all inspired. Hopefully, they’ll help you too.
“God our Eternal Father ordained that men and women should be companions. That implies equality… There is no basis in the gospel for inferiority or superiority between the husband and wife. Do you think that God our Eternal Father loves his daughters less than he loves his sons? No man can demean or belittle his wife as a daughter of God without giving offense to her Father in Heaven.” Gordon B. Hinckley
“We do not ever help anyone or have one iota of positive influence on them by standing or staying in the darkness with them.” Melodie Beattie
“Any man who abuses or demeans his wife physically or spiritually is guilty of grievous sin and in need of sincere and serious repentance… A man should always speak to his wife lovingly and kindly, treating her with the utmost respect,” President Howard W. Hunter, Being a Righteous Husband and Father.
“‘Fear is the original sin,’ suddenly said a still small voice away back — back — back of Valancy’s consciousness. ‘Almost all the evil in the world has its origin in the fact that some one is afraid of something.'” – The Blue Castle, by Lucy Maud Montgomery
“I believe one of the most important lessons a parent can teach a child is that integrity and honor are not practiced without price. They usually require sacrifice, almost always inconvenience, and often embarrassment.” (The Practice of Truth, J. Richard Clarke, May 1984 Ensign)
“You must become the rock that the river cannot wash away.” Elder Richard Maynes, Strength To Endure.
“Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.” Elizabeth Gilbert
“Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.” Psalms 16:1.
“In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.” Psalms 31:1
(All of the Psalms are wonderful reading to feel God’s support and protection.)
“The very thing you hate the most in your life is what God wants to use for good in your life.” -Rick Warren
“Please understand that what you see and experience now is not what forever will be. You will not feel loneliness, sorrow, pain, or discouragement forever. We have the faithful promise of God that He will neither forget nor forsake those who incline their hearts to Him. Have hope and faith in that promise. Learn to love your Heavenly Father and become His disciple in word and in deed.” Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf, You Matter To Him.
