    They Spoke to Us

    Quotes from the October 2008 general conference

    “May we be good citizens of the nations in which we live and good neighbors in our communities, reaching out to those of other faiths, as well as to our own.”

    —President Thomas S. Monson

    “As we study the scriptures, speak with our Heavenly Father daily, [and] commit to keep the commandments of God, … we attain hope.”

    —President Dieter F. Uchtdorf

    “The children of God have more in common than they have differences. … God will help us see a difference in someone else not as a source of irritation but as a contribution. The Lord can help you see and value what another person brings which you lack.”

    —President Henry B. Eyring
