One of the fondest memories of my Granddad Nelson was trading quotes regularly over email. Sadly I lost the email archive when I went on my mission, but it has continued to be an interest of mine. I hope you enjoy my collection of quotes. A bit of everything from religion to politics to leadership.

Don’t cling to a mistake just because you spent a lot of time making it.

What if public libraries were open late every night and we could engage in public life there instead of having to choose between drinking at the bar and domestic isolation.

It’s easy to look sharp when you haven’t done any work.

Don't be distracted by criticism.
Remember the only taste of success some people get is to take a bite out of you.

There is nothing worse than people who only see things from their point of view and refuse to try to understand anything from someone else's perspective.

I love public libraries because they are built on the principle that books are so important and so necessary to human flourishing that access to them cannot depend on your income.

Why do certain people take on greater and greater challenges that require supreme efforts to accomplish? One has only to look at the opposite type of person, one who attempts little in life, to answer this question. It is the difference between a leader and a follower, but they have a symbiotic relationship because one cannot exist without the other.

A sword isn’t the primary weapon. The Swordmaster is.

A person’s greatest weapon is not sword or shield, but is instead reputation, the life he has led, the good deeds he has performed. If those things cannot protect him, then he has already lost the battle.

The point of walking the covenant path is to approach the Savior.
