Elder Hansen
I guess I emailed the poems as well. Here are the quotes you desired.
Love, Sister Probst

Elder Neal A. Maxwell: “…ultimate consecration is the yielding up of oneself to God. If kept, then our performances will, in turn, be fully consecrated for the lasting welfare of or souls.”

Pres. Spencer W. Kimball “Practically all dishonesty owes its existence and growth to this inward distortion we call self-justification. It is the first, the worst, and most insidious and damaging form of cheating—to cheat oneself.”

Karl G. Maeser felt strongly that each of us at one time or another must face ourselves and choose between personal interests and that which we know to be right. He was once asked why he meant by “word of honor.” This was his answer. “Place me behind prison walls—walls of stone ever so high, ever so thick, reaching ever so far into the ground. There is a possibility that in some way or another I may be able to escape. But stand me on that floor and draw a chalk line around me and have me give my word of honor never to cross it. Can I get out of that circle? No. Never. I would die first.”

President James E. Faust: …”An honorable man or woman will personally commit to live up to certain self-imposed expectations. They need no outside check or control. They are honorable in their inner core.”

Elder Neal A. Maxwell: “If we desire the fullness we cannot hold back…The greatest happiness in God’s generous plan is finally reserved for those who are willing to stretch and to pay the costs of journeying to His regal realm.”
