Inspirational Thought

"There's an element of unpredictability, of uncertainty, of lottery, if you will, in the world that has been created for us.  If you judge your life's success by the world's standards, you may be elated or you may be gravely disappointed.  That, of course, is the secret to predictably successful living: the choice of standards by which you will judge your life's success.  If you judge by the world's standards, you may well be disappointed, for too many factors for such success are random or out of your control.  But there are other standards of success, where chance is not at play. . . . [W]ith [our core values] at our center, chance does not come into play in determining our success or failure.  The ability to live with integrity with the core of our values of love, family, service, and devotion is entirely up to us.  Fundamentally, this is the business of successful living."

Mitt Romney, "Forty Years On," BYU Magazine, Winter 2013
