I remember when Thomas S. Monson was sustained. I was sitting in my one bedroom apartment with my new baby at the start fo conference that day. I was still getting settled in for general conference when the spirit directed me to the television. At that moment they sustained Thomas S. Monson as the prophet of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The spirit washed over me and I knew the spirit was teaching me and helping me gain a testimony of this prophet.
Since this experience, I have had a testimony that Thomas S. Monson is a prophet of God. Learning of his passing tonight I am full of the spirit. And I immediately felt impressed to study his words tonight. As I studied I also felt the impression to share his words here as well as the prints I have been able to make over the years from this man. May you be uplifted by some of the best Thomas S.

BEST THOMAS S. MONSON QUOTES & PRINTS
“What power, what tenderness, what compassion did our Master and Exemplar thus demonstrate! We, too, can bless if we will but follow His noble example. Opportunities are everywhere. Needed are eyes to see the pitiable plight and ears to hear the silent pleadings of a broken heart. Yes, and a soul filled with compassion, that we might communicate not only eye to eye or voice to ear but, in the majestic style of the Savior, even heart to heart.”
– “Never Alone,” general conference, April 1991
“Find joy in the journey.”
“There are men and women everywhere who would be made better by our helping hand. They may be our neighbors, our friends, our business associates. All are our brothers and sisters.”
– “The Precious Gift of Sight,” Conference Report, April 1965
“Sincerely giving thanks not only helps us recognize our blessings, but it also unlocks the doors of heaven and helps us feel God’s love.” —Thomas S. Monson
“As we enter through the doors of the temple, we leave behind us the distractions and confusion of the world. Inside this sacred sanctuary, we find beauty and order. There is rest for our souls and a respite from the cares of our lives. … As we attend the temple, there can come to us a dimension of spirituality and a feeling of peace which will transcend any other feeling which could come into the human heart. … Such peace can permeate any heart—hearts that are troubled, hearts that are burdened down with grief, hearts that feel confusion, hearts that plead for help. … As we go to the temple, as we remember the covenants we make there, we will be better able to overcome those temptations and to bear our trials. In the temple we can find peace. … The blessings of the temple are priceless.”
– “Blessings of the Temple,” general conference, April 2015
“Our Heavenly Father is aware of our needs and will help us as we call upon Him for assistance. I believe that no concern of ours is too small or insignificant. The Lord is in the details of our lives.”
– “Consider the Blessings,” general conference, October 2012
“To live greatly, we must develop the capacity to face trouble with courage, disappointment with cheerfulness, and triumph with humility. You ask, ‘How might we achieve these goals?’ I answer, ‘By getting a true perspective of who we really are!’ We are sons and daughters of a living God, in whose image we have been created. Think of that truth: ‘Created in the image of God.’ We cannot sincerely hold this conviction without experiencing a profound new sense of strength and power, even the strength to live the commandments of God, the power to resist the temptations of Satan.”
– “Yellow Canaries with Gray on Their Wings,” general conference, April 1973
“We can lift ourselves and others as well when we refuse to remain in the realm of negative thought and cultivate within our hearts an attitude of gratitude.” —Thomas S. Monson
“Let us consider our callings, let us reflect on our responsibilities, let us determine our duty, and let us follow Jesus Christ our Lord.”
– “Your Eternal Voyage,” general conference, April 2000
“We need not visit the Holy Land to feel him close to us. We need not walk by the shores of Galilee or among the Judean hills to walk where Jesus walked.In a very real sense, all can walk where Jesus walked when, with his words on our lips, his spirit in our hearts, and his teachings in our lives, we journey through mortality.
I would hope that we would walk as he walked — with confidence in the future, with an abiding faith in his Father and a genuine love for others.”
– “The Paths Jesus Walked,” general conference, April 1974 “As we make Christ the center of our lives, our fears will be replaced by the courage of our convictions.” – Thomas S. Monson
“Life’s journey is not traveled on a freeway devoid of obstacles, pitfalls and snares. Rather, it is a pathway marked by forks and turnings. Decisions are constantly before us. To make them wisely, courage is needed: the courage to say no, the courage to say yes. Decisions do determine destiny.”
– “Courage Counts,” general conference, October 1986
“Brethren, the Lord knows each of us. Do you think for a moment that He who notes the sparrow’s fall would not be mindful of our needs and our service? We simply cannot afford to attribute to the Son of God the same frailties which we find in ourselves.”
– “The Service That Counts,” general conference, October 1989
