Vision in Life

“It is good to LOOK to the past to gain appreciation for the present and perspective for the FUTURE.It is good to look upon the VIRTUES of those who have gone before;to gain STRENGTH for whatever lies ahead.It is good to REFLECT upon the work of those who labored so hard and gained so little in this world,but out of whose DREAMS and early pains,so well nurtured,has come a great gravest of which we are the beneficiaries.Their tremendous EXAMPLE can become a compelling MOTIVATION for all of us.”-Gordon B. Hinckley

Water for Life

“The sea is the source of water and the source of wind;for neither would blasts of wind arise in the clouds and blow out from within them, except for the great sea,nor would the streams of rivers nor the rain-water in the sky exist but for the sea;but the great sea is the begetter of clouds and winds and rivers.”-Xenophanes

Beauty of Nature

“The mountains are fountains of men as well as of rivers,of glaciers,of fertile soil.The great poets,philosophers,prophets,able men whose thoughts and deeds have moved the world,have come down from the mountains– mountain dwellers who have grown strong there with the forest trees in Nature’s workshops.”-John Muir

Heaven and Earth

“All things are nourished together without their injuring one another.The courses of the seasons,and of the sun and moon,are pursued without any collision among them.The smaller energies are like river currents;the greater energies are seen in mighty transformations.It is this which makes heaven and earth so great.”- Confucius
