Weekly quotes come from BYU faculty members who are regarded by their students as being both spiritually strengthening and intellectually enlarging.
“I [tell] students … ‘Maybe there’s a chance somewhere in your life where you’re going to take what you learn here and you’re going to give back to the church. Maybe just in your ward, or maybe somewhere else, but hopefully you’re going to take your gifts, your talents, the things you’re given, and you’re going to be able to give them back.’ And I hope I’m an example of that for them, and they can say, ‘I’m going to go out and do something, but maybe I’ll come back and be able to really apply these things someday to help build the Kingdom.’ … I always say, ‘You’re the salt, you guys. … But don’t lose your savour, okay? … Don’t blow it, don’t go out and not make a difference. Be a Mormon. Be proud of that.'”
