"I love the motto, brethren: 'Do your duty; that is best. Leave unto the Lord the rest.' "
"Active service in the Aaronic Priesthood will prepare you young men to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood, to serve missions and to marry in the holy temple."
"Young men of the Aaronic Priesthood, your future beckons, prepare for it."
"It is important for each deacon to be guided to a spiritual awareness of the sacredness of his ordained calling."
"Now, pertaining to the teachers and priests, every one of you should be given the assignment to home teach with a companion who holds the Melchizedek Priesthood. What an opportunity to prepare for a mission. What a privilege to learn the discipline of duty. A young man will automatically turn from concern for self when he is assigned to 'watch over' others."
"Now some of you young men here tonight may be shy by nature or might consider yourselves inadequate to a calling. Remember that this work is not yours and mine alone. We can look up and reach out for divine help."
"A three-word formula will help us: never give up."
"Miracles are everywhere to be found when priesthood callings are magnified, when faith replaces doubt; when selfless service eliminates selfish striving, the power of God brings to pass his purposes. The priesthood is not really so much a gift as it is a commission to serve, a privilege to lift, and an opportunity to bless the lives of others."
