I have always been inspired by the amazing quotes sprinkled throughout the Education in Zion Gallery. The recent general conference reminded me again of the great words of our leaders that uplift us if we pay attention. Quotes from those who have gone before are moving reminders of the sacrifices they have made and what we, as their beneficiaries, need to live up to. The following is a list of some of my favorites.

Inspiring quotes found in the Education in Zion Gallery:

“The surest way to express love for God is by doing good to God’s children.”

— Jesse Knight

“[Brigham Young came to me and told me] that the school being taught by Brother Maeser was accepted in the heavens and was a part of the great plan of life and salvation and that Christ Himself was directing, and had a care over this school.”

— John Taylor

“Precisely as you partake of the Spirit, so will you progress in your studies.”

— Karl G. Maeser

“Keep busy in the face of discouragement.”

— Susan Young Gates

“This church is always only one generation away from extinction. All we would have to do to destroy this work is stop teaching our children for one generation.”

—Jeffrey R. Holland

 “You have it in your power to set in motion waves of action, love and kindness that will reach the shores of eternity.”

—Edwin S. Hinckley

Go find more for yourselves! The gallery is full of them to make your everyday brighter.
