Joseph F. Smith

“It is a comparatively easy thing for a man to say he believes in God and in the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, that he believes in repentance of sin, in baptism for the remission of sin, and in the laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost. It is apparently easy for a man to progress thus far. But when it comes to loving one’s neighbor as oneself, it is not so easy. . . . For few men indeed, or women, even in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, can say truthfully, ‘I love my neighbor as I love myself’” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Joseph F. Smith, p. 194-195).
