Quote of the Day: Neal A. Maxwell

This quote speaks with reference to youth, but I think it's message can be applied to us all.

Neal A. Maxwell

"Why do some of our youth risk engaging in ritual prodigalism, intending to spend a season rebelling and acting out in Babylon and succumbing to that devilishly democratic 'everybody does it'? Crowds cannot make right what God has declared to be wrong. Though planning to return later, many such stragglers find that alcohol, drugs, and pornography will not let go easily. Babylon does not give exit permits gladly" (in Conference Report, Oct. 1988, 40; or Ensign, Nov. 1988, 33 ).
