boyd-k-packer-large“In teaching the gospel we do not re-create the material world around us; we deal with the intangible world within us.  It is far easier to re-create the visible, tangible world around us in alphabetical symbols than to re-create the spiritual ideals and have them understood.  And yet it can be done, and it can be done most effectively by using symbols.”
– Boyd K. Packer

– Truman G. Madsen
