Even More Good Thoughts
Here's one of my favorite quotes:
Every man and every person who lives in this world wields an influence whether for good of for evil. It is not what he says alone, it is not alone what he does. It is what he is. Every man, every person radiates what he or she really is. Every person is a recipient of radiation. The Savior was conscious of that. Whenever He came into the presence of an individual, He sensed that radiation--
whether it was the woman of Samaria with her past life; whether it was the woman who was to be stoned or the men who were to stone her; whther it was the statesman, Nicodemus, or one of the lepers.
He was conscious of the radiation from the individual. And, to a degree, so are you, and so am I. It is what we are and what we radiate that affects people around us.
As individuals, we must think noble thoughts. We must not encourage vile thoughts or low aspirations. We shall radiate them if we do. If we think noble thoughts; if we encourage and cherish noble aspirations, there will be that radiation when we meet people,
especially when we associate with them.
~Pres. David O. McKay
