The new school year is just around the corner! And although the way our kids will be attending school may be very different than in years past, there's still so much exciting things in store this year. To help you and your loved ones get excited for this coming school year, here are 5 LDS Quotes on education to remind you about the power of learning.
"He who invades the domain of knowledge must approach it as Moses came to the burning bush; he stands on holy ground; he would acquire things sacred. We must come to this quest of truth—in all regions of human knowledge whatsoever, not only in reverence, but with a spirit of worship." - J. Reuben Clark Jr.
"Our Creator expects His children everywhere to educate themselves. … And He assures us that knowledge acquired here will be ours forever." - Russell M. Nelson
"While mortality is only a small moment in eternity, learning throughout our mortal lives is an essential part of our eternal education." - Robert D. Hales
"With the Lord, ‘all things work together for [our] good’ (Romans 8:28), and the education we receive comes in incremental steps as our lives unfold before us." - Dallin H. Oaks
"Follow the advice of these wise and inspired prophets. … 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
