Something Found Along the Way

One of the sacrament speakers today had a great quote by President Gordon B. Hinckley. I have not been able to locate it, but I stumbled on this one looking for it:
We live in an age of compromise and acquiescence. In situations with which we are daily confronted, we know what is right, but under pressure from our peers and the beguiling voices on those who would persuade us, we capitulate. We compromise. We acquiesce. We give in, and we are ashamed of ourselves. . . . We must cultivate the strength to follow our convictions. (Teachings of Gordon B. Hinckley, 135, ellipses in source.)
