Guiding Principles for the Young, Page 4

Christ shall practice the principles of the golden rule, the same power will attend the gospel as in apostolic times.—Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing, 181.

Love must be the principle of action.—Christ's Object Lessons, 49.

Joseph bore alike the test of adversity and prosperity.—Education, 52.

Let every one who claims to be a child of the heavenly King seek constantly to represent the principles of the kingdom of God.—Testimonies for the Church 6:189.

Many of the youth of this generation, in the midst of churches, religious institutions, and professedly Christian homes, are choosing the path to destruction.—Testimonies for the Church 6:254.

Purposefulness

But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king's meat, nor with the wine which he drank. Daniel 1:8.

A man's gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. Proverbs 18:16.

High and holy must be the purpose of everyone who obtains the character all must obtain who win the crown of everlasting life.—Signs of the Times, June 20, 1900.

Many desire the good, they make some effort to obtain it; but they do not choose it; they have not a settled purpose to secure it at the cost of all things.—Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing, 191.

Remember that you will never reach a higher standard than you yourself set. Then set your mark high, and step by step, even though it be by painful effort, by self-denial and sacrifice, ascend the whole length of the ladder of progress. Let nothing hinder you. Fate has not woven its meshes about any human being so firmly that he need remain helpless and in uncertainty.
