Specifically, most of his later Church career, professionally speaking, was spent in

So does he report to Sister Dew now? (who's president and CEO of Deseret Book Co.)

“We do not think that there is an incompatibility between words and deeds; the worst
thing is to rush into action before the consequences have been properly debated…To
think of the future and wait was merely another way of saying one was a coward; any
idea of moderation was just an attempt to disguise one’s unmanly character; ability to
understand a question from all sides meant that one was totally unfitted for action.”
about his fellow-Athenians, as quoted by Thucydides in “The Peloponessian Wars”
