making decisions

Making Decisions
"In my quiet moments,
I think of the future
with all of its wonderful possibilities
and with all of its terrible temptations.
I wonder
what will happen to you in the next 10 years.
Where will you be?
What will you be doing?
That will depend on the choices you make,
some of which may seem unimportant at the time
but which will have tremendous consequences.
"Someone has said,
'It may make a difference to all eternity
whether we do right or wrong today'
James Freeman Clarke,
in Elbert Hubbard's Scrap Book [1923],

"You have the potential
to become anything to which you set your mind.
You have a mind and a body and a spirit.
With these three working together,
you can walk the high road
that leads to achievement and happiness.
But this will require effort and sacrifice and faith."
Gordon B. Hinckley,
"Stay on the High Road," Ensign, May 2004, 112-13
