We must first move our feet

 While the Lord will magnify us in both subtle and dramatic ways, he can only guide our footsteps when we move our feet.

Marion G. Romney, “Principles of Temporal Salvation,” Ensign, Apr 1981, 3

Never imitate

Insist on yourself; never imitate. Your own gift you can present every moment with the cumulative force of a whole life’s cultivation; but of the adopted talent of another, you have only an extemporaneous, half possession. That which each can do best, none but his Maker can teach him. No man yet knows what it is, nor can, till that person has exhibited it.

Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Self-Reliance,” from Essays: First Series (1841)
