One Year Ago

Do you remember where you were a year ago today? I assume the answer is no, and if you’re like me you struggle to remember where you were a WEEK agounless you are one of those people with a photographic memory like Lexipedia (aka Lexie Grey from Grey’s Anatomy) or today’s your birthday (if so happy birthday!) or it was the best (or worst) day of your life. My answer to the question is no. However I do have quotes I wrote in my journal a year ago today I’m going to share with you! I didn’t write what I was doing or where I was instead there are quotes. Some of them have been posted previously, some are new. That’s a benefit of keeping a journal, you remember your memories.
“If all the sick for whom we pray were healed, if all the righteous were protected and all the wicked destroyed, the whole program of the Father would be annulled…No man would have to live by faith…There would be little or no suffering, sorrow, disappointment, or even death, and if these were not, there would also be no joy, success, resurrection, nor eternal life.”
-Spencer W. Kimball

“Love never dies a natural death. It dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds, it dies of weariness, of withering, of tarnishing.”
-Anais Nin

“Communication. It’s the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking the harder it becomes to know what to say, or how to ask for what we really need.”
-Meredith Grey, Grey’s Anatomy

“For a kiss to be really good, you want it to mean something. You want it to be with someone you can’t get out of your head, so that when your lips finally touch you feel it everywhere. A kiss so hot and so deep you never want to come up for air.”
-Alex Karev, Grey’s Anatomy

“Nothing is more despicable than respect based on fear.”
-Albert Camus

“Gravitation cannot be held responsible for people falling in love.”
-Albert Einstein

“Anger doesn’t solve anything. It builds nothing, but it can destroy everything.”
-Thomas S. Monsen

“We cannot gauge the worth of another soul any more than we can measure the span of the universe. Every person we meet is a VIP to our Heavenly Father. Once we understand that, we can begin to understand how we should treat our fellowmen.”

“True love requires action. We can speak of love all day long—we can write notes or poems that proclaim it, sing songs that praise it, and preach sermons that encourage it—but until we manifest that love in action, our words are nothing but sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal. Love is what inspired our Heavenly Father to create our spirits; it is what led our Savior to the Garden of Gethsemane to make Himself a ransom for our sins. Love is the grand motive of the plan of salvation. It is the source of happiness, the ever renewing spring of healing, the precious fountain of hope.”
-Dieter F. Uchtdorf

“Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it’s very important that you do it because nobody else will.”
-Tyler, Remember Me

“I invite each one of us individually to recognize that how we disagree is a real measure of who we are and whether we truly follow the Savior. It is appropriate to disagree, but it is not appropriate to be disagreeable. Violence and vandalism are not the answer to our disagreements. If we show love and respect even in adverse circumstances, we become more like Christ.”
-Quentin L. Cook

“We spend a lot of time focused on the future, planning it, working toward it. But at some point you start to realize your life is happening now. Right now. This is it. It’s here. Blink and you’ll miss it. So say what you want and mean it. Live each moment to the fullest. Today! Because tomorrow is never guaranteed.”
