Sunday Thought

When the real history of mankind is fully disclosed, will it feature the echoes of gunfire or the shaping sound of lullabies?  The great armistices made by military men or the peacemaking of women in homes and in neighborhoods?  Will what happened in cradles and kitchens prove to be more controlling than what happened in congresses?  When the surf of the centuries has made the great pyramids so much sand, the everlasting family will be standing, because it is a celestial institution, formed outside telestial time.  The women of God know this.  

                                    --Neal A. Maxwell

FYI, Neal A. Maxwell is Max's namesake.  He was extremely intelligent and an eloquent speaker. I always admired his usage of big words...even if I didn't always know what they meant!
