"Sometimes, the truth may just seem too straightforward, too plain, and too simple for us to fully appreciate its great value. So we set aside what we have experienced and know to be true in pursuit of more mysterious or complicated information. Hopefully we will learn that when we chase after shadows, we are pursuing matters that have little substance and value."
"I want you to know that in my life when I have had disappointments and delays, I have lived to see that if I continue to knock with unshakable faith and persist in my patience—waiting upon the Lord and his calendar—I have discovered that the Lord’s “no’s” are merely preludes to an even greater “yes.”"
"The fundamental truths of the restored gospel were not delivered to the Prophet Joseph Smith all at once in the Sacred Grove. These priceless treasures were revealed as circumstances warranted and as the timing was right."
"[The spirit of revelation] belongs to and should be operative in the life of every man, woman, and child who reaches the age of accountability and enters into sacred covenants. Sincere desire and worthiness invite the spirit of revelation into our lives."
"We all know that human judgment and logical thinking will not be enough to get answers to the questions that matter most in life. We need revelation from God. And we will need not just one revelation in a time of stress, but we need a constantly renewed stream."
"Yielding to emotions such as anger or hurt or defensiveness will drive away the Holy Ghost."
—Richard G. Scott, "How to Obtain Revelation and Inspiration for Your Personal Life"
"Logical thinking will not be enough to get answers to the questions that matter most in life. We need revelation from God."
"Some revelations are received immediately and intensely; some are recognized gradually and subtly."
"The Savior provides His gospel as a light to guide those who choose to believe in and follow Him."
"Recognizing the Savior's spiritual light begins with our willingness to believe."
