Avoid therefore as if on tiptoe the snare of strong opinions, for angry words becloud
the mind to fill you with frustration; but become instead that quiet observer which
sees and hears yet does not deep imbibe, choosing instead to calmly tread while still
you seek to guide.
7th Endowment 6:17
Be not yourself as one deceived nor as one who is lured or baited, but hold most
firm the peace of God and remember who you are; standing firm within that faith which
fills you up with joy, holding on to things eternal to become again most holy.
7th Endowment 6:29
Being yourself not dogmatic in the politics of the day, but proving yourself always
gracious and tolerant of others; seeking by every means to increase the love of God
and spiritual things through a gentle approbation.
Thinking always of what is good for the city, even above your own selves; believing
in your heart and mind that you are a child of God, having your citizenship found
first in Heaven; owing to God the Father and the Mother a true allegiance filled
with worship and devotion together.
4th Endowment 30:16-17
Peace then be in your mind and in the words you speak, peace then be in all your
deeds in dealing with mortal men, peace then be in the air you breathe to touch the
very ethers, to be yourself the peace of God which God would seek to give.
