“Blessed are the meek.”

3 Nephi 12:5

5 And blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

President Harold B. Lee said:

“A meek man is defined as one who is not easily provoked or irritated and forbearing under injury or annoyance. Meekness is not synonymous with weakness. The meek man is the strong, the mighty, the man of complete self-mastery. He is the one who has the courage of his moral convictions, despite the pressure of the gang or the club.”
