WeaKly QuoTe: Sometimes Weekly, sometimes Weakly, sometimes not so Weakly.


During an [Apple developer conference] audience Q&A, one man stated“Mr. Jobs, you’re a bright and influential man. It’s sad and clear that on several counts you’ve discussed, you don’t know what you’re talking about,” Steve Jobs replyed:“One of the hardest things when you’re trying to effect change is that people like this gentleman are right in some areas. I readily admit there are many things in life that I don’t have the faintest idea what I’m talking about. So I apologize for that….We’ll find the mistakes; we’ll fix them.” Steve Jobs

“The reference to scripture, Andrew [Teal, of Oxford University and the Church of England], you and I have that in common from the beginning, a love of scripture. I’m marking a new set. It’s hard for me to read without a pencil. I need to highlight and I need to make arrows and make little notes in the margins. So, once I’ve been through a set of scriptures, I have to set them aside or give them away. Then I start a new set. I’m just starting a new set myself, and I’m reading concurrently the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants — the whole church is reading the Doctrine and Covenants this year — but we always are supposed to dabble as we can each day in the Book of Mormon, so I’m doing both of those in a kind of concurrent and parallel way. But in honor of my love for you and my devotion to things British, I’m also doing the Oxford Study Bible, which is the revised English version, a hard copy, a hardback and is a delightful work, which I am loving.     Thirty years ago I’d gone through the new English Bible, but this has got some updated scholarship, a much more extensive series of footnotes, and of course the Apocrypha is included, which I find delightful and use from time to time. So in my little morning study, I’m running down three paths with the Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants and the new English Version in its most recent form, and I think of you when I open that latter book and remember how much I love you, and how much I enjoy Oxford and how much I am anxious to have you come and teach at BYU.” Jeffrey R Holland, April 6, 2021 to his friend, Rev. Dr. Andrew Teal, of Oxford University and the Church of England
