Because I just liked it.

“Watch ye,’ Paul said. Be wise. There are a lot of roads to travel on. Many places to go, countless things to see. Companions of all kinds are available. So watch your step, examine carefully the alternatives. There are only so many books you can read, so many places you can go, so many tasks you can prepare to work at and actually give your time to; you can only have so many real friends; you have one character to form, one life to live, one Master who can be served at a time. So, said Paul, “Watch you.” Be wise. Keep reading, keep thinking, keep asking, keep interested. Try out your own ideas, weigh them and weigh those of others, thoughtfully, prayerfully, honestly. Let truth have it’s chance in the marketplace.”

Elder Marion D. Hanks

So much to do, so little time. Thanks for the reminder of how to choose wisely what I do today.
