"Hope ya know..."

"Regardless of our trials, with the abundance we have today, we would be ungrateful if we did not appreciate our blessings.

Despite the obvious nature of the hardships the pioneers were experiencing, President Brigham Young talked about the significance of gratitude.

He stated, 'I do not know of any, excepting the unpardonable sin, that is greater than the sin of ingratitude.'"

- Quentin L. Cook,
"Hope Ya Know, We Had a Hard Time,"
General Conference, October 2008

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
