I always loved listening to President Hinckley. He was such an inspiration of living a happy, righteous life. I have a collection of his quotes...they always are such good words to live by. I came across this one recently and can hear his voice when I read it. :)
"You can be excellent in every way. You can be first class. There is not need for you to be a scrub. Respect yourself. Do not feel sorry for yourself. Do not dwell on unkind things others may say about you. Polish and refine whatever talents the Lord has given you. Go forward in life with a twinkle in your eye and a smile on your face, but with great and strong purpose in your heart. Love life and look for its opportunities."
