“One of the highest qualities of all true leadership is courage…that quality of life by which an individual determines the proper course to pursue and stand with fidelity to their convictions…the most momentous questions and the greatest dangers to personal happiness are not always met and solved within oneself [without the aid of a higher power, or God] and if individuals cannot courageously meet the difficulties, and obstacles of their individual lives and natures, how are they to meet successfully those public questions in which the welfare and happiness of the public concerned?”- Joseph F. Smith
