January 03, 2018

When I heard the news about our beloved prophet Thomas S. Monson passing away, I began thinking about all of the words he had shared in his life that truly impacted me. His spirit was joyful, powerful, and kind beyond belief. His words always resonated with me so deeply, and because of him, I learned to love the scriptures and gained a greater desire to read them. There are so many more incredible and inspired words he shared than what I have listed below, but here are 10 quotes from 10 talks by Thomas S. Monson that changed me for the better:
"As we arise each morning, let us determine to respond with love and kindness to whatever might come our way." Love - the Essence of the Gospel

"In the game of life a second effort is often required. The happy life is not ushered in at any age to the sound of drums and trumpets. It grows upon us year by year, little by little, until at last we realize that we have it. It is achieved in individuals not by flights to the moon or Mars, but by a body of work done so well that we can lift our heads with assurance and look the world in the eye. Of this be sure: You do not find the happy life...you make it."Faces and Attitudes

"We were not placed on this earth to walk alone."We Never Walk Alone

"From the depths of my soul and in all humility, I testify of the great gift which is our Father's plan for us. It is the one perfect path to peace and happiness."The Perfect Path to Happiness

"Our responsibility is to rise from mediocrity to competence, from failure to achievement. Our task is to become our best selves. One of God's greatest gifts to us is the joy of trying again, for no failure ever need be final." -The Will Within

"Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey, and share our love with friends and family." Finding Joy in the Journey

"He will not always take your afflictions from you, but He will comfort and lead you with love through whatever storm you face."Looking Back and Moving Forward

"Rather than being judgmental and critical of each other, may we have the pure love of Christ for our fellow travelers in this journey through life."Charity Never Faileth

"I plead with you to have the courage to refrain from judging and criticizing those around you, as well as the courage to make certain everyone is included and feels loved and valued."May You Have Courage

"Remember, you are never alone. Never forget that you are loved. Never doubt that someone surely cares for you."A Time to Choose
