I want to ask this congregation, every man, woman and child, to answer the question in their own heart, what kind of a being God is? . . . Does any man or woman know? Have any of you seen him, heard him, or communed with him? . . . God himself was once as we are now, and is an exalted man, and sits enthroned in yonder heavens! That is the great secret. If the veil were rent today, and the great God who holds this world in its orbit, and who upholds all worlds and all things by his power, was to make Himself visible,óI say, if you were to see Him today, you would see Him like a man in formólike yourselves in all the person, image, and very form as a man; for Adam was created in the very fashion, image and likeness of God, and received instruction from, and walked, talked and conversed with Him, as one man talks and communes with another. . . . It is the first principle of the Gospel to know for a certainty the Character of God, and to know that we may converse with him as one man converses with another, and that He was once a man like us; yea, that God Himself, the Father of us all, dwelt on an earth, the same as Jesus Christ himself did; and I will show it from the Bible.Author: Joseph Smith, Source: Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 345
All your losses will be made up to you in the resurrection, provided you continue faithful. By the vision of the Almighty I have seen it.Author: Joseph Smith, Source: Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 296
That which is wrong under one circumstance, may be, and often is, right under another. God said, 'Thou shalt not kill'; at another time He said, 'Thou shalt utterly destroy.' This is the principle on which the government of heaven is conductedóby revelation adapted to the circumstances in which the children of the kingdom are placed. Whatever God requires is right, no matter what it is, although we may not see the reason thereof till long after the events transpire.Author: Joseph Smith, Source: Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 256-7
It is my meditation all the day, and more than my meat and drink, to know how I shall make the Saints of God comprehend the visions that roll like an overflowing surge before my mind.Author: Joseph Smith, Source: History of the Church, 5:362
A person may profit by noticing the first intimation of the spirit of revelation; for instance, when you feel pure intelligence flowing into you, it may give you sudden strokes of ideas, so that by noticing it, you may find it fulfilled the same day or soon; [that is,] those things that were presented unto your minds by the Spirit of God, will come to pass; and thus by learning the Spirit of God and understanding it, you may grow into the principle of revelation, until you become perfect in Christ Jesus.Author: Joseph Smith, Source: Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 151
Take away the Book of Mormon and the revelations, and where is our religion? We have none.Author: Joseph Smith, Source: History of the Church 2:52
I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.Author: Joseph Smith, Source: Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 194
And when they ask us what we're doing, you can say, We're remembering. That's where we'll win out in the long run. And someday we'll remember so much that we'll build the biggest ** steamshovel in history and dig the biggest grave of all time and shove war in and cover it up.Author: Ray Bradbury, Source: Fahrenheit 451, p. 164
Is it because we're having so much fun at home we've forgotten the world? Is it because we're so rich and the rest of the world's so poor and we just don't care if they are? Author: Ray Bradbury, Source: Fahrenheit 451, p. 73
If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, given him none. Let him forget there is such a thing as war. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.Author: Ray Bradbury, Source: Fahrenheit 451, p. 61
