I really love this quote. I love the part that says that the Lord is pleased with *every* effort, even the *tiny* ones, in which we strive to be more like Him. I love the hopefulness of that statement -- that even the small movement forward is progress!

"We must not lose hope. Hope is an anchor to the souls of men. Satan would have us cast away that anchor. In this way he can bring discouragement and surrender. But we must not lose hope. The Lord is pleased with every effort, even the tiny, daily ones in which we strive to be more like Him. Though we may see that we have far to go on the road to perfection, we must not give up hope" (The Teachings of Ezra Taft Benson, p. 398).
