New Favorite Quote

Opposition turns up almost anyplace something good has happened.
It can happen when you are trying to get an education.
It can hit you after your first month in your new mission field.
It certainly happens in matters of love and marriage.…
There are cautions and considerations to make,
but once there has been genuine illumination,
beware the temptation to retreat from a good thing.
If it was right when you prayed about it
and trusted it and lived for it, it is right now.
Don’t give up when the pressure mounts. … Face your doubts. Master your fears.
‘Cast not away therefore your confidence.’
Stay the course and see the beauty of life unfold for you.

-Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, 
“Cast Not Away Therefore Your Confidence,”
Brigham Young University devotional address, March 2, 1999.
