onward ho!

"In urging us to be perfect as our Father in Heaven is perfect, Jesus was not taunting us. He was telling us a powerful truth about our possibilities and about our potential. ...

"Each of us has more opportunities to do good and to be good than we ever use. These opportunities lie all around us. Whatever the size of our present circle of effective influence, if we were to improve our performance even a little bit, that circle would be enlarged. There are many individuals waiting to be touched and loved if we care enough to improve our performance."

--President Spencer W. Kimball, "Jesus: the Perfect Leader", Ensign, Aug 1979, 5

Do I care enough?
