Another Great Quote

I love this quote by Elder Neil A. Maxwell:

"When the real history of mankind is fully disclosed, will it feature the echoes of gunfire or the shaping sound of lullabies? The great armistices made by military men or the peacemaking of women in homes and in neighborhoods? Will what happened in cradles and kitchens prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses? When the surf of the centuries has made the great pyramids so much sand, the everlasting family will still be standing, because it is a celestial institution..." Ensign May 1978

I have read many of Elder Maxwell's books, some more than once. I also have many of his talks loaded onto my IPod. I have listened to many of them over and over and over again. He has been a great teacher of mine. When he died I really had a hard time. Now I am just grateful that there are so many of his talks and books available for me to read.
