the work of the world isn't done by geniuses

Yesterday I went to one of the best Relief Society lessons I've ever heard. It was focused on Richard G. Scott's General Conference talk about character, which was my favorite talk from last conference. Here are some of my favorite quotes:

"Faith is a foundation building block of creation."

"We become what we want to be by consistently being what we want to become." (life motto)

"Noble character is like a treasured porcelain made of select raw materials, formed with faith, carefully crafted by consistent righteous acts and fired in the furnace of uplifting experience. It is an object of great beauty and priceless worth."

"Your character is a measure of what you are becoming. It is the evidence of how well you are using your time on earth in this period of mortal probation."

The lesson concluded with the above clip by President Hinckley at the BYU-Idaho building dedication. I heard about 3 words, and was already emotional. I miss President Hinckley and the warmth and love he exuded from the pulpit. He was one of the most remarkable individuals to ever walk this earth, and I feel so blessed to have lived during his presidency. Listen to this clip, it's the most uplifting speech I've heard in a very long time.
