The righteousness of man…is sin, because it exacteth overmuch.

—Joseph Smith

When someone veers irrevocably from sound religion to either extreme—irreligion (languid or impudent) or fanaticism (blind or studied)—that soul is in thrall of the Evil One, who cares not whether the error be short of truth or beyond it.

—Ralph Sheffield

Neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man in the Lord.

Love is more than just a feeling. It is a decision, a commitment to care forever.


True love is not so much a matter of romance as it is a matter of anxious concern for the well-being of one's companion.
—Gordon B. Hinkley

The love of husband and wife is an eternal bond, not sealed lightly in frivolity or passion but entered into by premeditation, careful observation, sacred association and prayer.

—David O. McKay

A real man makes things happen. A real woman makes them worth happening.

—Ralph Sheffield

As unto the bow the cord is,

So unto the man is woman.

Though she bends him, she obeys him.

Though she draws him, yet she follows.

Useless each without the other!

—Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

In the arithmetic of love, one plus one equals everything, and two minus one equals nothing.

—Mignon McLaughlin

Marriage presupposes total allegiance. The spouse becomes pre-eminent in the life of the husband or wife, and neither social nor occupational nor political nor any other interest nor person nor thing shall ever take precedence over the companion spouse. Any divergence is sin; any sharing the heart is transgression.

—Spencer W. Kimball

The wedding ring gives no man the right to be cruel or inconsiderate, and no woman the right to be slovenly, cross, or disagreeable.

Any tampering with the fountains of life is serious—morally, mentally, psychologically, physically. Those who yield to the ugly sin of abortion, and those who assist them, should remember that retribution is sure.

—Spencer W. Kimball

A child needs a mother more than all the things money can buy.

—Ezra Taft Benson

An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.

—Spanish Proverb

A child left to himself bringeth his mother to shame.

—Proverbs 29:15

Joining the sordid ranks that abuse females now are socio-political carpetbaggers (some themselves female) hawking “new lamps for old,” leaving many bereft of their once divine gift of femininity, while the inane “new lamp” of pseudo-masculinity holds no genie at all. Their dupes, in turn, run like mad-folk through the garden of humanity wresting off blossoms, shrilling that peach trees must grow carrots, that springtime and summer have no distinct, symbiotic roles—but the chicane ends in emptiness and judgment. Yet, if our efforts to achieve justice for the fair sex have been betrayed by the petulant excesses of some, our faith in womankind is reaffirmed by each successful wife and mother, by each real lady, crowned with femininity, unabashed by the strident harangue of “tomboy groups” nor bedeviled to deem it progress to scorn sewing needle and bedtime story for the jack-hammer and vulgar jest. Her domestic magnum opus eclipses the ancillary work of those who neglect sacred priorities. She sagely discerns that the world is benefitted more by the life and work of one true feminine like Nancy Hanks Lincoln than many mere feminists, who, though female, may have fallen from, or never attained the grace, the glory, the ethos of woman—their special genius has eluded them. Indeed, they are the sick counterpart of the male chauvinists, and the world is poorer for it.

—Ralph Sheffield

It is for the husband to…gather around his family the comforts of life, to control his passions and temper, and to command the respect of his family.

If fathers are to be respected, they must merit respect; if they are to be loved, they must be consistent, lovable, understanding, and kind.

—Spencer W. Kimball

One father is more than a hundred school-masters.

—George Herbert

Parent love is beautiful, but parent love combined with intelligent discipline is the force that turns children into great characters.

—Thorpe B. Isaacson

If children knew the misery, the desolating sorrow…their acts sometimes [cause] their parents, they could not have the heart thus cruelly to afflict them.

—Gen. Robert E. Lee

The family has always been the cornerstone of American society. Our families nurture, preserve, and pass on to each succeeding generation the values…that are the foundation of our freedoms.

—Ronald Reagan

No success can compensate for failure in the home.

—David O. McKay

Civilization is a method of living, an attitude of respect.

—Jane Addams

Love is the essence of civilization.


—Henry Knight Miller

A decent respect for the poor is [a] true test of civilization.

—Samuel Johnson

Wo unto you poor men, whose spirits are not contrite, whose bellies are not satisfied, whose eyes are full of greediness, and who will not labor with your own hands!

—Doctrine & Covenants 56:17

Gambling is for losers. If you lose, you lose. If you win, you lose, as Judgement takes hold above and avarice below, spurning you subtly, inevitably out of the higher stakes game—life.

—Ralph Sheffield
