Messages of inspiration from President Monson

Open book

As parents, we should remember that our lives may be the book from the family library which the children most treasure. Are our examples worthy of emulation? Do we live in such a way that a son or a daughter may say, "I want to follow my dad," or "I want to be like my mother"? Unlike the book on the library shelf, the covers of which shield its contents, our lives cannot be closed. Parents, we truly are an open book in the library of learning of our homes. — "Dedication Day," October 2000 general conferenceDo something

(Regarding humanitarian service) When we work together cooperatively to lift the level of life for so many people, we can accomplish anything. When we do so, we eliminate the weakness of one person standing alone and substitute the strength of many serving together. While we may not be able to do everything, we can and must do something. — "Our Brother's Keeper," BYU Management Society and BYU Alumni Association, Feb. 12, 1999
