David O. Mckay Saying: Would you have a strong and virile nation, keep your homes pure; would you reduce delinquency and crime, lessen the number of broken homes.

Home building, therefore, should be the paramount purpose of parents and of the nation.

David O. Mckay Quotes: The noblest calling in the world is motherhood. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions.

Quotes about David O. Mckay: The character of a child is formed largely during the first twelve years of his life. He spends 16 times as many waking hours in the home as in the school, and 126 times as many hours in the home as in the church. Each child is, to a great degree, what he is because of the ever-constant influence of home environment and the careful or neglectful training of parents. Home is the best place for the child to learn self-control, to learn that he must submerge himself for the good of another. It is the best place in which to develop obedience, which nature and society will later demand.

David O. Mckay Quote: The greatest forces in the world are being used against families and traditional family values. These values are being undermined in subtle and in not-so-subtle ways. Because of this assault on family values, it takes all of your best efforts to fortify your family. It takes hard work and planning. It takes sacrifice. 'In the setting of the family...may I suggest that we give more of ourselves.'
