"Relief Society is a way of life for Latter-day Saint women."

"Saving Souls includes sharing the gospel and participating in missionary work.  It includes sharing the gospel and participating in missionary work.  It includes engaging in temple and family history work.  It includes doing everything possible to become spiritually and temporally self-reliant."

"There are many sisters who are living in rags-spiritual rags.  They are entitles to gorgeous robes, spiritual robes...It is your privilege to go into homes and exchanges robes for rags." - President Spencer W. Kimball

"Cannot you see why the Lord has put it upon the...Relief Society to visit these homes?  Because, next to the Master himself, there are none in the Church who have a more lovely touch, a more complete understanding of the hearts and lives of these individuals."  - President Harold B. Lee

"To lead the world...especially the women of the world, in everything that is praiseworthy, everything that is God-like, everything that is uplifting and that is purifying to the children of men."  - President Joseph F. Smith
