Our strengths can become our weaknesses

Just read a talk by Elder Dallin Oaks, "Our Strengths Can Become our Weaknesses." It's a pretty good talks. A couple of quotes that I enjoyed (because they strengthened my biases, which is pretty ironic given the talk):
  • "It may be just as dangerous to exceed orthodoxy as it is to fall short of it."
  • "To wrest the words of a prophet to support a private agenda, political or financial or otherwise, is to try to manipulate the prophet, not to follow him." (I'll post more on this later).
Read it. It's good.
