The only certain freedom's in departure.
Testimony is the beginning of and a prerequisite to continuing conversion. Testimony is a point of departure; it is not an ultimate destination. Strong testimony is the foundation upon which conversion is established.

David A. Bednar

Hussein of Jordan

Percy Bysshe Shelley
