Quote of the Day: Gordon B. Hinckley

President Gordon B. Hinckley:

“Who among us can say that he or she has not felt fear? . . . We suffer from the fear of ridicule, the fear of failure, the fear of loneliness, the fear of ignorance. Some fear the present, some the future. Some carry the burden of sin and would give almost anything to unshackle themselves from those burdens but fear to change their lives. Let us recognize that fear comes not of God, but rather that this gnawing, destructive element comes from the adversary of truth and righteousness. Fear is the antithesis of faith. It is corrosive in its effects, even deadly” ( “God Hath Not Given Us the Spirit of Fear,” Ensign, Oct. 1984, 2 ).
