Improvement is a life long journey

None of us will become perfect in a day or a month or a year. We will not
accomplish it in a lifetime, but we can begin now, starting with our more
obvious weaknesses and gradually converting them to strengths. This quest may
be a long one; in fact, will be lifelong. It may be fraught with many mistakes,
with falling down and getting back up again. But we must not sell ourselves
short. We must make a little extra effort. Kneel before God in supplication. He
will comfort, sustain, and bless us.

– Gordon B. Hinckley

Reading/Knowledge is Power

In this world there are many who are unable to read or write. For them there is
little light of ages past, and only diminished knowledge of the vast and
intriguing world of the present. The darkness that surrounds them, the bleak
shadow of illiteracy, condemns them to poverty, hunger, and ignorance. Do
whatever you can to help them, whether they be in your home, neighborhood, or
across the world. Bring light into their lives by helping them learn to read.
– Gordon B. Hinckley
