“As a first step, . . . make truly applicable the simple injunction of putting one’s self in the other fellow’s place, the surest of all means of eliminating the bitterness that characterizes misunderstandings.
“No thinking person can say truthfully that the application of this one simple act if practiced among individuals and nations would not bring about a better world!
“Equally effective and applicable are His teachings regarding the value and sacredness of human life, the virtue of forgiveness, the necessity of fair dealing, His condemnation of the sin of hypocrisy, and of covetousness, His teachings regarding the saving power of love, and of the immortality of the soul” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: David O. McKay, p. 6).
