Spirit

A Quote by Daniel Webster on angels, god, spirit, and trust

I thank God, that if I am gifted with little of the spirit which is able to raise mortals to the skies, I have yet none, as I trust, of that other spirit which would drag angels down.

Daniel Webster (1782 - 1852)

A Quote by Daniel H. Wells on fulfillment, god, good, spirit, and spirituality

We cannot fulfill our engagements with the Almighty without we have that Spirit with us. We should so live as to acknowledge the Good Spirit continually. We cannot do this unless we let the Spirit of God rule in temporalities as well as in spiritual matter.

A Quote by Dallin H. Oaks on attitude, beginning, children, earth, eternity, god, identity, individuality, knowledge, practice, prophets, purpose, and spirit

Our attitude toward abortion . . . is fixed by our knowledge that according to an eternal plan all of the spirit children of God must come to this earth for a glorious purpose, and that individual identity began long before conception and will continue for all the eternities to come. We rely on the prophets of God who have told us that while there may be 'rare' exceptions, 'the practice of elective abortion is fundamentally contrary to the Lord's injunction, 'Thou shalt not . . . kill, nor do anything like unto it'

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.

A Quote by Coretta Scott King on beginning, history, needs, and spirit

There is a spirit and a need and a man at the beginning of every great human advance. Every one of these must be right for that particular moment of history, or nothing happens.
