Discipleship requires us to be willing to stand alone

"Finally, brothers and sisters, in certain times and circumstances, discipleship requires us to be willing to stand alone! Our willingness to do so, here and now, is consistent with Christ’s kneeling alone, there and then, in Gethsemane. In the final atoning process, “none were with [Him]” (D&C 133:50; see also Matt. 26:38–45)."

- Elder Neal A. Maxwell, Of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, "The Seventh Commandment: A Shield," General Conference, Oct 2001
