“But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them. …. And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?” —Luke 24:29, 32
“My hope is to increase your desire and your ability to receive the Holy Ghost. Remember, He is the third member of the Godhead. The Father and the Son are resurrected beings. The Holy Ghost is a person of spirit. It is your choice whether to receive Him and welcome Him into your heart and mind.” —Henry B. Eyring
