And whatsoever they shall speak when moved upon by the Holy Ghost shall be scripture, shall be the will of the Lord, shall be the mind of the Lord, shall be the word of the Lord, shall be the voice of the Lord, and the power of God unto salvation.
(D&C 68:4)

Most of us have collections of sayings we live by.... Whenever words fly up at me from the printed page as I read, I intercept them instantly, knowing they are for me. I turn them over carefully in my mind and cling to them hard.
  Ray Stannard Backer, pseudonym: David Grayson (1870-1946) US author, biographer

Topic: Our Sustaining Vote

This practice of raising hands to sustain one who has been called to lead or to teach in the Church is a matter of sacred importance. The voting to sustain takes place in meetings, and the sustaining of the First Presidency, now broadcast to the Church across the world, conforms to a revelation from the Lord. "I say unto you, that it shall not be given to any one to go forth to preach my gospel, or to build up my church, except he be ordained by one who has authority, and it is known to the church that he has authority and has been regularly ordained by the heads of the church" (D&C 42:11; emphasis added). - Boyd K. Packer, "The Shield of Faith," Ensign (CR), May 1995, p. 7

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. - Martin Luther King Jr.
