A good friend of my is going through some potentially big decisions in his life and while contemplating the decisions before him he came across this great quote by Thomas Monson on the need for courage in making decisions.
"Life's journey is not traveled on a freeway devoid of obstacles, pitfalls, and snares. Rather, it is a pathway marked by forks and turnings. Decisions are constantly before us. To make them wisely, courage is needed: the courage to say, 'No,' the courage to say, 'Yes,' Decisions do determine destiny. The call for courage comes constantly to each of us. It has ever been so, and so shall it ever be."
-Thomas S. Monson
"The Call for Courage," Ensign, May 2004, 54-55
My dad is a big fan of Monson and has always recommended his books. In college I had the chance to hear him speak a few times and was very impressed.
