Elihu Root was an American lawyer and statesman who served as the Secretary of State under President Theodore Roosevelt and as Secretary of War under Roosevelt and President William McKinley. He moved frequently between high-level appointed government positions in Washington, D.C. and private-sector legal practice in New York City. For that reason, he is sometimes considered to be the prototype of the 20th century political "wise man," advising presidents on a range of foreign and domestic issues. He was elected by the state legislature as a U.S. Senator from New York and served one term, 1909–1915. Root was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1912.

Russell Marion Nelson Sr. is an American religious leader and former surgeon who is the 17th and current president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints . Nelson was a member of the LDS Church's Quorum of the Twelve Apostles for nearly 34 years, and was its president from 2015 to 2018. Church president Thomas S. Monson's death in January 2018 left the 93-year-old Nelson as the most senior apostle by years of service and thus the presumptive new church president. He was ordained on January 14, 2018. As church president, Nelson is accepted by the church as a prophet, seer, and revelator.
Choose your friends with caution; plan your future with purpose, and frame your life with faith.Thomas S. Monson
