Today's thought

"A third contributing factor to happiness I name as the confidence of self-mastery. No one wishes to be a slave to other human beings; no one willingly bows down to a dictator. But some are slaves to themselves, to their appetites, and passions. They are not free. They have deprived themselves of freedom and of individual liberty. Instead of being kings and masters of self, they are slaves. . . . as children of God they should not be slaves to an appetite" (David O. McKay, Gospel Ideals, p. 498-499).
