"Celebration is the bounteous feast of human experience, a table spread with wholesome, joyous, delightful, precious opportunities. We get to make up our own plate."

Jaroldeen Asplund Edwards 
"Celebration!", page 73

"Joyous festivities marked the Feast of Tabernacles; the 'ingathering' spirit prevailed; without their harvests Israel would perish for want of bread; and famine was a constant threat. How natural that they should rejoice in what the Lord had given them--from the soil and the rain and the sun! And how natural that Jehovah would expect of them thanksgiving and rejoicing for the bounties that flowed from his hands!"

Bruce R. McConkie 
"The Mortal Messiah", 1:172

"There are three obvious ways in which the saints praise their Messiah:

1. They sing the songs of Zion and the great Christian anthems, which musical presentations teach and testify of our Lord's wondrous works. 
2. They preach mighty sermons, pray in faith to the Father in the name of the Son... 
3. They live as their Lord lived, keep his commandments, do as he did, and thus become living witnesses of the truth and divinity of his work."

Bruce R. McConkie 
"The Promised Messiah", p. 554-555

"Can there be any more glorious concept than this, that lowly and fallen and mortal and sinful man--that all of us--can forsake our evil and wicked ways and find harmony and unity with our Eternal Father? Ought we not to shout praises to the Holy One of Israel forever for his goodness to us?"

Bruce R. McConkie 
"The Promised Messiah", p. 260

"And so, my beloved brothers and sisters, let us rejoice together now as we celebrate with appreciation the wondrous doctrines and practices which have come as a gift from the Lord in this most glorious time of His work. This is the Easter season, when we remember His glorious resurrection, of which we bear witness. Let us ever be grateful for these most precious gifts and privileges and act well our part as those who love the Lord. I invite you to listen to the words which will go forth from this pulpit, to be delivered by those who have been called as your servants. May we be blessed, I humbly pray in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.
" - Gordon B. Hinckley, "We Bear Witness of Him," Ensign (CR), May 1998, p.4
