  • What was that? An elderly couple had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen. The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, "Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great. You ought to try it. The other man said, "What is the name of the restaurant? The first man thought and thought and finally said, "What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love? You know... The one that's red and has thorns. "Do you mean a rose?

  • Spencer W. Kimball Now this (doctrine), again l say, is not a matter of opinion. This isn't something you can go out and argue about.

There will be no escape. The honest judge will give full value to all for their good work and will not overlook the other Now, my young brothers and sisters, if I meet any of you beyond the veil--I'll reach there before you do--don't anyone of you ever come to Brother Kimball and say, "You didn't tell me. I didn't understand. Nobody warned me of this. BYU Devotional, 30 September 1973 BYU Devotional, 30 September 1973

  • 2 Nephi 9 O that cunning plan of the evil one! O the vainness, and the frailties, and the foolishness of men! When they are learned they think they are wise, and they hearken not unto the counsel of God, for they set it aside, supposing they know of themselves, wherefore, their wisdom is foolishness and it profiteth them not. And they shall perish. Is Jacob saying we should be Un-learned?
