Today's Lesson: Chapter 1: Learning by Faith

Some notable quotes of Lorenzo Snow from today's lesson:

"The whole idea of Mormonism is improvement—mentally, physically, morally and spiritually. No half-way education suffices for the Latter-day Saint."

"The education of the Spirit is worthy of our best attention.

"There is a kind of education worthy [of] the best attention of all, and in which all ought to engage—that is the education of the Spirit.

"A little spiritual knowledge is a great deal better than mere opinions and notions and ideas, or even very elaborate arguments; a little spiritual knowledge is very important and of the highest consideration.

"We must not neglect our spiritual improvements while we seek for worldly wealth. It is our duty to make every effort for the purpose of advancing ourselves in the principles of light and knowledge, as well as of increasing around us the temporal blessings and comforts of this life.

"If our minds are too one-sided, paying too much attention to the acquiring of earthly goods, to the neglect of spiritual wealth, we are not wise stewards
