And the Lord, even the Savior, shall stand in the midst of his people, and shall reign over all flesh. And they shall be filled with songs of everlasting joy. —Doctrine & Covenants 133: 25, 33
Man is a spiritual being, a soul, and at some period of his life everyone is possessed with an irresistible desire to know his relationship to the Infinite. . . . There is something within him which urges him to rise above himself, to control his environment, to master the body and all things physical and live in a higher and more beautiful world. —David O. McKay
