davidomckay“Generally there is in man a divinity which strives to push him onward and upward. We believe that this power within him is the spirit that comes from God. Man lived before he came to this earth, and he is here now to strive to perfect the spirit within. At sometime in his life, every man is conscious of a desire to come in touch with the Infinite. His spirit reaches out for God. This sense of feeling is universal, and all men ought to be, in deepest truth, engaged in the same great work—the search for and the development of spiritual peace and freedom.”
– David O. McKay


trumanmadsen“President Grant believed that intellectual reasons for refusing to investigate the church or for leaving the church are after ‘after the fact’ – and the fact is behavior.  When a person’s life is out of harmony with the truth he tends to find a rationale for his behavior.  He has received some light, but he tries to suppress it and invents plausible reasons to do so.  But he believed conscience will speak out in protest at our lives and our sins when we are out of harmony.  On the other hand, our conscience will ‘kiss’ us, as it were, when we honor the core of our hearts, which is truth.”

StephenCovey“For most of us most of the time the Holy Ghost will speak through our consciences. The Spirit of Jesus Christ is the medium through which the Holy Ghost, this member of the Godhead, performs his unique and special functions. . . You won’t hear a voice in your ear. You’ll feel it; you’ll sense it. There’s an awareness, particularly if you have educated your conscience through the teachings of the Church and prayer and scripture study.”
– Stephen R. Covey
