Excerpt from The Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star, Vol. 96: April 19, 1934
I thought success was gold, the great man said, But I have tons of gold; but cannot say I have success. And all my life I used to pray For fame - I thought fame was success instead Fame is a burden as my gold When I am dead My gold shall scatter as the salter-spray, My fame is but a feeble glow, gone with the day I wooed success; but we have ne'er been wed.
Truly the philosopher said well, when he said, that there is not necessarily any relation between money and true success.
After all, what is success? And who 1s competent to judge? The great masses of people who lived In the days of our Saviour would have looked upon Jesus as a complete failure. Even His disciples thought they faced failure when they saw their Lord hung on the cross. Was Christ's earthly mission a failure? No. The following centuries reveal to us that it was decidedly not so.
