Whether you’re preparing to go back to school, helping your children get excited for another year, or just a life-long learner, these five LDS back-to-school quotes and the talks they come from are great sources of inspiration about education and knowledge.



We should learn to discern the truth not only through our rational minds but also through the very still and small voice of the Spirit. – Mathias Held | Seeking Knowledge by the Spirit



From heavenly instructions and added to which are the experiences of almost anyone who has sought diligently for heavenly guidance, one may readily understand that learning by faith requires the bending of the whole soul through worthy living to become attuned to the Holy Spirit of the Lord, the calling up from the depths of one’s own mental searching, and the linking of our own efforts to receive the true witness of the Spirit. – Harold B. Lee | The Iron Rod



Seek learning by studying diligently. Rarely will you be able to spend as much time dedicated to learning as you can now. Be a good student. Arise and shine forth in your schools with hard work, honesty, and integrity. If you are struggling or discouraged with your performance in school, seek help from your parents, teachers, and helpful Church members. Never give up! – Mary N. Cook | Seek Learning: You Have a Work to Do



Education is the difference between wishing you could help other people and being able to help them. – Russell M. Nelson | What Will You Choose



Education is the key to opportunity. – Gordon B. Hinckley | Perpetual Education Fund



Our Heavenly Father expects us to use our agency and inspiration to examine ourselves and our abilities and decide the educational course we should follow. This is especially important for young people who have finished high school and missionary service and now face decisions about further schooling and employment. – Dallin H. Oaks | Learning and Latter-day Saints



You are living through a critical period of your life. The choices you make—mission, education, marriage, career, and service in the Church—will shape your eternal destiny. This means you will always be looking ahead—looking to the future. – Robert D. Hales | Meeting the Challenges of Today’s World



If formal education is not available, do not allow that to prevent you from acquiring all the knowledge you can. Under such circumstances, the best books, in a sense, can become your ‘university’—a classroom that is always open and admits all who apply. – Dieter F. Uchtdorf | Two Principles for Any Economy



The importance of gaining knowledge is an eternal principle…All truth and knowledge is important, but amidst the constant distractions of our daily lives, we must especially pay attention to increasing our gospel knowledge so we can understand how to apply gospel principles to our lives. – Ann M. Dibb | I Know It. I Live It. I Love It. 



Because of our sacred regard for each human intellect, we consider the obtaining of an education to be a religious responsibility. Yet opportunities and abilities differ. I believe that in the pursuit of education, individual desire is more influential than institution, and personal faith more forceful than faculty. – Russell M. Nelson | Where Is Wisdom?
