It is not necessary to expect that all of us, as teachers, will regularly draft, revise, and publish our own essays and poems. What is necessary, however, is that we have memories of a time when we loved writing and that we draw on those memories when we teach writing. If we have even once in our lives experienced the power of writing, our teaching will forever be changed.

Character is the aim of true education; and science, history and literature are but means used to accomplish this desired end. Character is not the result of chance, but of continuous right thinking and right acting. True education seeks to make men and women not only good mathematicians, proficient linguists, profound scientists, or brilliant literary lights, but also, honest men, with virtue, temperance, and brotherly love. It seeks to make men and women who prize truth, justice, wisdom, benevolence, and self-control as the choicest acquisitions of a successful life. It is regrettable that modern education so little emphasizes these fundamental elements of true character.

What does [the Holy Ghost] do for the education of the children of men?  Far more than our academies do.  Our children have, by hard study, year after year, to acquire their learning in these human institutions; hard thinking is necessary, reasoning, gaining little by little, and it frequently requires many years of close application to become what is termed a learned man--a man that understands the sciences, that has worked his way through the various departments of mathematics, and perhaps geology, and mineralogy, and all the sciences, such as are usually taught in universities.  But the man filled with the Holy Ghost has got the advantage of students who graduate at our universities.  Why?  Because he can learn more in ten minutes, in regard to many things, than another, not so favored, can in all his life.  Indeed, he can learn some things by the operations of the Holy Ghost, which no natural man or woman could learn, however gifted they may be.  You may inquire where they could learn these things?  I answer, by the revelations of the Holy Ghost, which brings to light many things that are past, and shows things that are in the future.  The Lord is just as able to show one of his pupils, who will take the necessary steps to be taught, what will take place a year, or ten years, or a hundred, or a thousand or more years hence, as the principals in our universities are to teach persons concerning things present.  God is not confined to the present, or to things immediately concerning his pupils, or those who may enter into the university he has prepared, but he opens the past and future to the minds of men, just as Jesus promised his disciples, when he was about to leave them.  “Howbeit when he, the Spirit of Truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth; and he will show you things to come” [John 16:13].  (Journal of Discources, 19:284)

Our government with its liberty and free institutions will not long survive a government trained and supervised youth. Such a youth can be a revolutionary machine. The ravening wolves are amongst us, from our own membership, and they, more than any others, are clothed in sheep’s clothing because they wear the habiliments of the priesthood…we should be careful of them.
