Women

"Women of God cannot be like women of the world.  The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender.  There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind.  There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined.  We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith.  We have enough greed; we need more goodness.  We have enough vanity; we need more virtue.  We have enough popularity; we need more purity." 
Margaret D. Nadauld



"You were not created to be the same as men.  Your natural attributes, affections, and personalities are entirely different from these of a man.  They consist of faithfulness, benevolence, kindness, and charity.  They also balance the more aggressive and competitive nature of man.  The business world is competitive and sometimes ruthless.  We do not doubt that women have both he brain power and the skills to compete with men.  But by competing they must of necessity, become aggressive and competitive.  Thus their godly attributes are diminished and they acquire a quality of sameness with man.  The conventional wisdom of the day would have you be equal with men.  We say, we would not have you descend to that level."
President Ezra Taft Benson
