Fridge Quotes

  1. ““I asked the young men to vote and told them I wanted them to sustain the young
    ladies in their positions; and also if they did not leave off their drinking and tobacco
    where were the young girls to get husbands?”
    Jill Mulvay Derr, Karen Lynn Davidson
    (Eliza: The Life and Faith of Eliza R. Snow)

  2. ““I thought when I was abroad, I thought before I went, and I have thought much since I returned, how necessary for the Saints of the living God to be more of a distinct people than what they are, to be the Saints of God in very deed—and to be as different from the world as our privileges are more exalted—we should be a shining light to the nations of the earth. . . . We are privileged above all other woman-kind.””
    Jill Mulvay Derr, Karen Lynn Davidson

  3. ““How Great the Wisdom and the Love” is perhaps the most memorable of all [of Eliza’s hymn texts]. Eliza presents the fundamental truth of the Savior’s sacrifice and the emblems of that sacrifice in a fresh and thoughtful way. The Savior’s mission on earth was not a
    last-minute emergency measure but part of a plan that had been established long before
    the earth’s creation. Eliza steps back in time, back into the eternities, and begins
    her poem with a scene placed in the distant reaches of time.

  5. “Eliza cherished Zion as a bastion of liberty and justice—“Where have the Constitution and laws reigned during the last few years, but in Utah?” she asked in 1858—and she did not hesitate to criticize, sometimes bitterly, governmental attempts to interfere with Saints’ regulation of their own society.”

  6. “[When] she addressed the Polysophical Society, she chose to speak of the eternal worth and destiny of women, not by claiming the superiority of either sex but by reminding the audience that a woman is not a “play-thing” or a “dazzling butterfly” but one with a “holy calling,” holding with man “a key / Of present and eternal destiny.””

  7. “Whenever Eliza was in Salt Lake, she was “a constant officiate in [the Endowment] House.” For thirty years Eliza functioned as a central figure in the administration of the endowment for Latter-day Saint women. Her colleague and friend Emmeline B. Wells did not exaggerate
    when she observed that “thousands of the daughters of Zion, have received blessings
    under her [Eliza’s] hands.”

  10. “Some people—even some Latter-day Saints—get confused and mistakenly think that it is only our good works that will save us in the celestial kingdom. If we can only pay enough tithing, go to enough church meetings, set up 100,000 metal chairs, and serve enough people, then we will be qualified for heaven! Wrong. Those good works are wonderful—but they won’t save us. Our good works contribute to our salvation in the sense that they act as prerequisites for making covenants with God.”

  11. “You have been exercising faith in Jesus Christ since before you were born. In a way, you’re not here to gain a testimony—you’re here to simply remember the one you’ve always had.”

  14. “Imagine our excitement when our Heavenly Father told us of His eternal plan of salvation and said that if we would follow the plan we could become like Him and eventually have—for ourselves—an eternal marriage and family of our very own! And now we are here on earth, trying to create that future eternal family for ourselves.”

  15. “Tall people didn’t become tall overnight. Accomplished artists didn’t learn to paint in a day. Physical muscles aren’t built by lifting one weight in a single workout. And spiritually converted people didn’t become like Christ in an instant.

  16. “"Do you see any vultures or birds of prey among those beautiful, peaceful swans? There are only swans! Why? Because birds of a feather flock together!" [The] message was simple. Our friends will reflect what kind of person we are.”

  19. “I pray that we will seek the gifts of the Spirit which will increase our holiness. Because of the Savior's infinite Atonement, those gifts are right there, waiting to help us to become more holy. With enduring and persistent personal effort, we can access those gifts of the Spirit, those gifts from the Lord. Through this process, we truly can become a little more holy today than yesterday, and a little more holy tomorrow than we are today.”

  20. “Just as the Sermon on the Mount begins on a mountain, it ends by talking about the wise man who builds upon that mountain, by not only hearing but actually patterning his house of righteousness after God's holy house. Progressively, through these stages of ascent, there comes first fulfillment of the law amidst the people of Israel, next perfection of each individual, and finally hearing the Lord himself say, "Enter," not "Depart" (3 Nephi 14:21-23). ”
