MONSON_medium“If you are a single college student, I ask you to make participation in institute a priority.  Married students and other young adults are also welcome and encouraged to attend.  Think of it.  Friends will be made, the Spirit will be felt, and faith will be strengthened.  I promise you that as you participate in institute and study the scriptures diligently, your power to avoid temptation and to receive direction of the Holy Ghost in all you do will be increased.  Divine favor will attend those who humbly seek it.  That is a promise which I leave with you.”
– Thomas S. Monson

– Henry Ford*

– Boyd K. Packer




boyd-k-packer-large“We do not learn spiritual things in exactly the same way we learn other things that we know, even though such things as reading, listening, pondering may be used. I have learned that it requires a special attitude both to teach and learn spiritual things. There are some things you know, or may come to know, that you will find quite difficult to explain to others. I am very certain that it was meant to be that way.”
– Boyd K. Packer


hinckley_medium“None of us knows enough. The learning process is an endless process. We must read, we must observe, we must assimilate, and we must ponder that to which we expose our minds. . . . You cannot afford to stop. You must not rest in our development. . . . There is so much to learn and so little time in which to learn it.”
– Gordon B. Hinckley
