He may bestow upon us conviction and confidence as we strive to achieve worthy goals.
David A. Bednar
Here in America we are descended in blood and in spirit from revolutionists and rebels - men and women who dare to dissent from accepted doctrine. As their heirs, may we never confuse honest dissent with disloyal subversion.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Death may be the greatest of all human blessings.
It's very easy to say that something is a shadow of itself, and it may be true in some senses.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
