When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive - to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.
Rank does not confer privilege or give power. It imposes responsibility.
Life is a gift, and it offers us the privilege, opportunity, and responsibility to give something back by becoming more.
Prayer is a privilege and the soul's sincere desire. We can move beyond routine and 'checklist' prayers and engage in meaningful prayer as we appropriately ask in faith and act, as we patiently persevere through the trial of our faith, and as we humbly acknowledge and accept 'not my will, but Thine, be done.'
David A. Bednar
I believed in studying just because I knew education was a privilege. It was the discipline of study, to get into the habit of doing something that you don't want to do.
When you go somewhere like Kenya and you see how the children don't have pencils and pens, and all of these things are considered luxuries, and what a privilege they see education as and how hungry they are to learn, I wanted to give my brother and sister long lectures. That definitely stayed with me.
Let us realize that: the privilege to work is a gift, the power to work is a blessing, the love of work is success!
David O. McKay

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too.
Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed.
I always felt that the great high privilege, relief and comfort of friendship was that one had to explain nothing.

Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.

When we lose the right to be different, we lose the privilege to be free.
Charles Evans Hughes
Being a role model is a privilege.
There is no magical reason why I am where I am. And there is absolutely no reason why you can't be where you want to be. If it can happen for me, it can happen for you, too. And it would be a privilege for me to help you get there.
Writing is an extreme privilege but it's also a gift. It's a gift to yourself and it's a gift of giving a story to someone.
It's the generally accepted privilege of theologians to stretch the heavens, that is the Scriptures, like tanners with a hide.
Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible, Thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought is great and swift and free.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
