[Though I Myself Am An Atheist, I Openly Profess Religion In The Sense Just Mentioned, That Is, A Nature Religion. I Hate The Idealism That Wrenches Man Out Of Nature; I Am Not Ashamed Of My Dependency On Nature; I Openly Confess That The Workings Of Nature Affect Not Only My Surface, My Skin, My Body, But Also My Core, My Innermost Being, That The Air I Breathe In Bright Weather Has A Salutary Effect Not Only On My Lungs But Also On My Mind, That The Light Of The Sun Illumines Not Only My Eyes But Also My Spirit And My Heart. And I Do Not, Like A Christian, Believe That Such Dependency Is Contrary To My True Being Or Hope To Be Delivered From It. I Know Further That I Am A Finite Moral Being, That I Shall One Day Cease To Be. But I Find This Very Natural And Am Therefore Perfectly Reconciled To The Thought.]

Quotes About Covenant Life

"As sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father, we are capable of so much more. For that, good intentions are not enough. We must do. Even more important, we must become what Heavenly Father wants us to be.Declaring our testimony of the gospel is good, but being a living example of the restored gospel is better. Wishing to be more faithful to our covenants is good; actually being faithful to sacred covenants—including living a virtuous life, paying our tithes and offerings, keeping the Word of Wisdom, and serving those in need—is much better. Announcing that we will dedicate more time for family prayer, scripture study, and wholesome family activities is good; but actually doing all these things steadily will bring heavenly blessings to our lives." - Author: Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Quotes About Black And White Equality

"How skillful to tax the middle class to pay for the relief of the poor, building resentment on top of humiliation! How adroit to bus poor black youngsters into poor white neighborhoods, in a violent exchange of impoverished schools, while the schools of the rich remain untouched and the wealth of the nation, doled out carefully where children need free milk, is drained for billion-dollar aircraft carriers. How ingenious to meet the demands of blacks and women for equality by giving them small special benefits, and setting them in competition with everyone else for jobs made scares by an irrational, wasteful system. How wise to turn the fear and anger of the majority toward a class of criminals bred - by economic inequity - faster than they can be put away, deflecting attention from the huge thefts of national resources carried out within the law by men in executive offices." - Author: Howard Zinn
