"His followers have always been hungry for the word of the Lord, for they have been taught that it is essential to their salvation. 'I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do' (2 Ne. 32:3). Is there anything more wonderful than being shown what it is that God would have us do? The disciples also sought the companionship of the Holy Ghost because they knew that through him the will of the Lord could be revealed to them constantly (see D&C 8:2-3; D&C 18:18). To have the guidance of the Holy Ghost is truly one of the mercies of Christ." F. Melvin Hammond, "The Power of the Book of Mormon," "Ensign," Oct. 1996, p. 14-15

"Revelation comes to us in our minds, but it also comes to us in our hearts. In a revelation to Oliver Cowdery in the Doctrine and Covenants, section 8, the Lord says, 'Yea, behold, I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost, which shall come upon you and which shall dwell in your heart.' (D&C 8:2). To me, it is very interesting that the dwelling-place of the Holy Ghost is in our hearts." James E. Faust, "Where Is the Church?" "Ensign," Aug. 1990, p. 67

"As long as the Prophet lived, the Lord revealed his will to that generation through him. And it is significant how much of what he revealed dealt with the issues of that day. Since the Prophet's martyrdom, the will of the Lord has been given through succeeding prophets, Presidents Brigham Young, John Taylor, Wilford Woodruff, Lorenzo Snow, Joseph F. Smith, and Heber J. Grant, who each in his turn has presided over the Church, and, like unto Moses, has guided the people of his generation on the issues of their day by the spirit of revelation. (See Doc. and Cov. 107:9; 8:2-3.)" Marion G. Romney, "Conference Report," April 1945, p. 90

"There is a higher gift than the gift of the ministering of angels, and that is the gift of the Holy Ghost. This is the Spirit described in this revelation which I have quoted to you. It is with the Prophet and becomes, so to speak, a part of him. God dwells with His servants through the Holy Spirit, which manifests unto them the very things they should do. As this revelation says: 'This is the Spirit by which Moses brought the children of Israel through the Red Sea on dry ground.'" George Q. Cannon "Gospel Truth: Discourses and Writings of President George Q. Cannon," p. 246

"What kind of voice is Jesus'? Most often it is 'the voice of the Spirit,' which is likened to 'the still small voice' (D&C 84:46; 104:36; 85:6). Furthermore, 'My voice is Spirit' (D&C 88:66). While literacy in the things of the Spirit is vital, audibility may be no help to the undiscerning - as when 'a voice from heaven' was heard, yet some merely 'said that it thundered' (John 12:28, 29). Thus communication from the Lord is most often a voice in which 'I will tell you in your mind and in your heart, by the Holy Ghost' (D&C 8:2). Such is 'the spirit of revelation' (D&C 8:3). This particular process is the more secure and sure way of revelation." Neal A. Maxwell, "If Thou Endure It Well," [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1996], p. 107
