[The companion] is there for a purpose. He isn't there just to decorate you. He's there to make you shine, he's there to serve a great purpose. Think of what life would be without your companion. Getting up every morning alone, going out to work, knocking on doors every day, alone. Pretty scary, wouldn't it be? I think it would. Be grateful for your companions. I thank the Lord and will always be grateful for my companions in the mission field.
– Gordon B. Hinckley
