My Favorite Quotes on the Subject of Jewels
"A group of ancient Roman women were, with vanity, showing their jewels one to another. Among them was Cornelia, the mother of two boys. One of the women said to her, "And where are your jewels?" to which Cornelia responded, pointing to her sons, "These are my jewels." Under her tutelage, and walking after the virtues of her life, they grew to become.... two of the most persuasive and effective reformers in Roman history. For as long as they are remembered and spoken of... their mother will be remembered and spoken of with praise also." President Gordon B. Hinckley
"How much more beautiful would be the world and the society in which we live if... every mother regarded her children as the jewels of her life, as gifts from the God of heaven, who is their Eternal Father, and brought them up with true affection in the wisdom and admonition of the Lord." President Gordon B. Hinckley
