A Quote by Dallin H. Oaks on church, duty, education, eternity, god, knowledge, learning, mind, motives, questions, service, simplicity, spirit, and teaching

Motive is also important in our quest for knowledge and in the questioning that accompanies it. In commenting on our duty to educate for eternity, Eugene England writes: Teaching or learning - with the Spirit of God simply means (though it is not simple) that we are doing so with an eye single to eternal, not worldly, values, with an eye single to lasting development of the mind and spirit and to useful service to others, especially to aid in their lasting development of mind and spirit. -Why the Church is as True as the Gospel, Bookcraft, 1986, p. 86.
