My Friend

My friend put this quote by President Hinckley on her blog. I loved it. He had this way of making you want to improve your life and do better without making you feel guilty or feel like a failure. I loved his guidance and insights - he was always positive and hopeful. I have many other favorite quotes that I will try to post in the future.
"I have discovered that life is not a series of great heroic acts. Life at its best is a matter of goodness and decency, doing without fanfare that which needed to be done. I have observed that it is not the geniuses that make the difference in this world. I have observed that the work of the world is done largely by men and women of ordinary talent who have worked in an extraordinary manner."--President Gordon B. Hinckley.

This same friend has been doing a series of posts on her blog about "going green." She is very informed and well-read and gives some great suggestions. It has really made me want to find ways to live my life in a way that is more favorable to the world around me. I recommend reading her "installments" - she has done four so far.
Installment One
Installment Two
Installment Three
Installment Four
