Joseph Smith quotes :
A man filled with the love of God is not content with blessing his family alone, but ranges through the whole world, anxious to bless the whole human race.Joseph Smith
The best way to obtain truth and wisdom is not to ask from books, but to go to God in prayer, and obtain divine teaching.Joseph Smith, Jr.
Never be discouraged. If I were sunk in the lowest pits of Nova Scotia, with the Rocky Mountains piled on me, I would hang on, exercise faith, and keep up good courage, and I would come out on top.Joseph Smith, Jr.
If you do not accuse each other, God will not accuse you. If you have no accuser you will enter heaven. What many people call sin is not sin I do many things to break down superstition, and I will break it down.Joseph Smith, Jr.
I told the brethren that the Book of Mormon was the most correct of any book on earth, and the keystone of our religion, and a man would get nearer to God by abiding by its precepts, than by any other book.Joseph Smith, Jr.
