“This life is the time to prepare to meet God. We are a happy, joyous people. We appreciate a good sense of humor and treasure unstructured time with friends and family. But we need to recognize that there is a seriousness of purpose that must undergird our approach to life and all our choices.”
Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, “Choose Wisely,” Ensign, Nov. 2014, 49.
