Quotes by Royden G. Derrick:

The concept of the welfare system, which holds each of us responsible, first, for our own welfare second, for the welfare of our family and third, for the welfare of our neighbors, removes the waste, inefficiency, greed, and selfishness that plague our government welfare programs. The concept within the program of developing self-sufficiency builds self-confidence, self-reliance, and self-discipline, which puts us in the people-building business in a meaningful way.

Gospel Concepts. Fireside address given at Brigham Young University on 26 Oct. 1980.
