F. David Stanley

Second Quorum of the Seventy (June 6, 1992 – October 4, 1997)

General Conference Addresses

  • April 1993 General Conference
    • The Principle of Work
      • “Hard work is a blessing of God. It involves going after it “with all your heart, might, mind and strength.” (D&C 4:2.) That alone is the difference between the average and the excellent.”
      • “Young men, are you spending too much time desiring what you want to be instead of establishing a course of discipline and working hard on what you are going to be?”
      • “While many are sitting and saying and even shouting great swelling words of marginal effectiveness, hard-working Latter-day Saints will always be found diligently doing and delivering potatoes to their neighbors. Contrary to the belief of many, “Say” and “Sit” will never replace “Diligently Do.” When you accept an assignment or commit to work for someone, work for them. Your integrity to that commitment will follow you throughout life. Any group of young men in any quorum knows who the workers are—those hallowed, quiet few who simply know how to get it done. My young friends of the Aaronic Priesthood, say less and do more. Get it done.”
