Gordon B. Hinckley quote

I just stumbled across this quote by Gordon B. Hinckley, and I think it’s so cute and funny. (and true!) Just like he was!

“Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don’t drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just like people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey … delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinders, and jolts, interspersed only occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride.”



  1. great quote, love it!

  2. President Hinckley was so real, I just loved him for saying just what I needed to hear!!!! I loved this conference because again questions were answered and the words spoken where truth!!!!

  3. I remember that talk! So so true.

  4. How funny! I just discovered this quote a couple of weeks ago, too, on someone’s blog! I really liked it and was like, “I need to show this to my husband!”

    Definitely a good quote. Helps put things in perspective.
