Andrew Rail, the man behind Classical Mormons on Instagram, has an amazing backstory of gospel service. In this episode, he shares with us his thoughts on Elder Holland’s talk, “Be Ye Therefore Perfect… Eventually” from the October 2017 General Conference. Andrew brought some wisdom and a series of fascinating life experiences to Talks on Talks, and we know you’ll learn a thing or two from this man of many memes!

Virtuous, Lovely, and Good Report: Quote from Seneca: “True happiness is to enjoy the present, without anxious dependence upon the future, not to amuse ourselves with either hopes or fears but to rest satisfied with what we have, which is sufficient, for he that is so wants nothing. The greatest blessings of mankind are within us and within our reach. A wise man is content with his lot, whatever it may be, without wishing for what he has not.” - https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/222770-true-happiness-is-to-enjoy-the-present-without-anxious-dependence
