"Tonight I wish to speak to the youngest members of this royal army — the Aaronic Priesthood: deacons, teachers and priests venturing forth upon the battlefield of life."

"In the decade ahead, your time for preparation will be limited. As Aaronic Priesthood bearers, it is important that you prepare now. You must develop your own pre-conditioned responses for the important decisions you will make in the next decade of your life. You must know what to do and when to do it when each decision presents itself. ... Many of the decisions you make, or don't make, will have eternal consequences."

"Now is the time to become a disciple of Jesus Christ, which means accepting his invitation to 'Come, follow me.' ... Now is the time to organize and prepare ourselves to have the Holy Ghost as our constant companion. ... Now is the time to decide who your friends are and to become worthy of a righteous eternal companion. ... Now is the time to prepare for your mission."

"Now is the time to prepare for training, education and an occupation. ... Now is the time to obey. ... Now is the time to use our time properly. ... Now is the time to safely guard your birthright. ... Now is the time to prepare for your decade of decision, 'Be there!"'
