Bestow Quotations

Sometimes we may ask God for success, and He gives us physical and mental stamina. We might plead for prosperity, and we receive enlarged perspective and increased patience, or we petition for growth and are blessed with the gift of grace. He may bestow upon us conviction and confidence as we strive to achieve worthy goals.
David A. Bednar

Freedom is not something that one people can bestow on another as a gift. Thy claim it as their own and none can keep it from them.
Kwame Nkrumah

Whenever we think of Christ, we should recall the love that led Him to bestow on us so many graces and favors, and also the great love God showed in giving us in Christ a pledge of His love; for love calls for love in return. Let us strive to keep this always before our eyes and to rouse ourselves to love Him.
Saint Teresa of Avila

Every time I bestow a vacant office I make a hundred discontented persons and one ingrate.
Louis XIV

I wish with all my heart that you may be the most lovable prince in the world, and I bestow my gift on you as much as I am able.
