The Challenge of Raw Materials

“God left the world unfinished for man to work his skill upon. He left the electricity in the cloud, the oil in the earth. He left the rivers unbridged, the forests unfelled and the cities unbuilt. God gives to us the challenge of raw materials, not the ease of finished things. He leaves the pictures unpainted and the music unsung and the problems unsolved, that we might know the joys and glories of creation.”
– Thomas S. Monson

#hat-tip to LDS Quote a Day for noting this so I could find it online. This has been a favorite quote of mine for years and I appreciate being able to find it.
