"In the light of the terrible waste of money for the use of these harmful substances, the injury to the human body through their use, and the spiritual uplift that comes to those who keep their bodies clean through abstaining from their use, how can one question the source whence this revelation, the Word of Wisdom, came? It was far ahead of the scientific thought of its day. It must have, and did, come from God." LeGrand Richards, "A Marvelous Work and a Wonder," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1950], p. 366

"Parents, these are not the times for weak attempts and half measures, but for the full strength of righteous, prayerful, God-fearing effort to walk ourselves, and to lead our children, along the paths of sobriety and chastity." J. Reuben Clark, "Messages of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," 6 vols. (Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1965-75), 6: 173

"If you would escape from the devastations when God's judgments descend upon the wicked, as in the days of the children of Israel, you must remember and do what the Lord commands: '...all saints who remember to keep and do these sayings'-meaning keep His great law of health, known as the Word of Wisdom-and in addition thereto walk 'in obedience to the commandments,' which would include honesty, moral purity, together with all the laws of the celestial kingdom, then 'the destroying angel shall pass by them, as the children of Israel, and not slay them.' (D&C 89:18, 21)" Harold B. Lee, "Stand Ye in Holy Places," [Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co., 1974], p. 24

"You will add to your knowledge temperance. It must accompany knowledge because all excesses are corroding, debasing, debilitating. For this reason the Lord God gave us the Word of Wisdom. Be temperate." Hugh B. Brown, "The Abundant Life," [Salt Lake City: Bookcraft, 1965], p. 344

"I know it is not necessary to be talking to our families all the time about the Word of Wisdom, if we set a proper example ourselves; but if we do not set such an example, then we have to be continually talking in order to counteract the influence of our own example. I feel that fathers will have much to answer for in these matters; for if a man takes a correct course in this direction, his wife and his children will follow his example. God has said that those who will observe this counsel shall have wisdom given to them, even great treasures of wisdom. And these are the men we want-men of wisdom. And will you have wisdom if you take this course? Just as sure as God has said so; for His word will not fail. And those who observe the Word of Wisdom will be distinguished among this people because of the wisdom that God will give them. God will give them the blessings that He has promised, and He will preserve them." George Q. Cannon, "Avoiding the Perils of Apostasy," Parowan Stake Conference, Monday, June 20, 1892
