July Commonplace Sampler

This is the day that the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
-Psalm 118:24

"There needs to be a new emphasis on honesty, character, and integrity in our time. Only as we build again into the fibre of our lives the virtues that are the essence of true civilization will the pattern of our times change. The question that confronts us is, Where shall we begin?

"I am satisfied that it must begin with recognition of God as our Eternal Father, of our relationship to Him as His children, with communication with Him in recognition of His sovereign position, and with daily supplication for His guidance in our affairs."
-Elder Gordon B. Hinckley, Feb. 1991 Ensign

If we and our posterity reject religious instruction and authority, violate the rules of eternal justice, trifle with the injunctions of morality and recklessly destroy the political constitution which holds us together, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us that shall bury all our glory in profound obscurity...
-Daniel Webster
