Time and Talents

Increase-in-Learning-CoverI picked up the e-book copy of Elder David A. Bednar’s book “Increase in Learning”, and started into it. It’s got me thinking a lot about learning (connecting a little with the lists and reading thing I talked about yesterday), and I want to explore that for a moment.

WARNING: This post will feature some pretty on-point discussion of LDS scripture and doctrine. If that’s not your bag, come back tomorrow. I may be back to discussing anime, or writing, or something else.

Still here? Okay.

Trust30 Day 3 – Your Work

Thought I wouldn’t get this in, didn’t you?

Yeah. Me too.

Here’s the quote:

That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him. Where is the master who could have taught Shakespeare? Where is the master who could have instructed Franklin, or Washington, or Bacon, or Newton? . . . Shakespeare will never be made by the study of Shakespeare. Do that which is assigned you, and you cannot hope too much or dare too much. – Ralph Waldo Emerson
