Harold B. Lee“Testimony isn’t something you have today, and you are going to have always. A testimony is fragile. It is as hard to hold as a moonbeam. It is something you have to recapture everyday of your life.”
– Harold B. Lee



brigham-young-mormon“When I saw a man without eloquence or talent for public speaking, the Holy Ghost proceeding from that individual, illuminated my understanding and light, glory, and immortality were before me.  I was encircled by them, filled by them,  and I knew for myself that the testimony of the man was true… The world with all wisdom, power, with all the glory and gilded show of its kings and potentates, sinks into perfect insignificance when compared to the simple, unadorned testimony of the servant of God.”
– Brigham Young (referring to Eleazer Miller)


spencerwkimball“I say to everyone within the sound of my voice, ‘Do not fail the Lord’. We must accept the truth that the gospel principles are not on trial but that we are.”
– Spencer W. Kimball




elizarsnow“I will go forward…I will smile at the rage of the tempest, and ride fearlessly and triumphantly across the boisterous ocean of circumstance…And the ‘testimony of Jesus’ will light up a lamp that will guide my vision through the portals of immortality, and communicate to my understanding the glories of the Celestial kingdom.”
– Eliza R. Snow



Heber_Chase_Kimball-2“Let me say to you, that many of you will see the time when you will have all the trouble, trial, and persecution that you can stand, and plenty of opportunities to show that you are true to God and His work.  This church has before it many close places through which it will have to pass before the work of God is crowned with victory… The time will come when no man nor woman will be able to endure on borrowed light.  Each will have to be guided by the light within himself.  If you do not have it, how can you stand?”
– Heber C. Kimball


boyd-k-packer-large“Keep the fire of your testimony of the restored gospel and your witness of our Redeemer burning so brightly that our children can warm their hands by the fire of your faith.”
– Boyd K. Packer




Lorenzo Snow“Knowing our religion to be true we ought to be the most devoted people on the face of the earth to the cause we have embraced.  Knowing as we do, or should know, that the gospel we have received promises all our hearts can wish or desire, if we are faithful, we ought to be very faithful, devoted, energetic and ambitious in carrying out the designs and wishes of the Lord as He reveals them from time to time through His servants.  We ought not to be lukewarm or negligent in attending to our duties, but with all our might, strength, and souls we should try to understand the spirit of our calling and the nature of the work in which we are engaged.”
– Lorenzo Snow
