"The great overall struggle in the world today is, as it has always been, for the souls of men. Every soul is personally engaged in the struggle, and he makes his fight with what is in his mind. In the final analysis the battleground is, for each individual, within himself. Inevitably he gravitates toward the subjects of his thoughts. Ages ago the wise man thus succinctly stated this great truth: 'As he thinketh in his heart, so is he' (Prov. 23:7).

"If we would escape the lusts of the flesh and build for ourselves and our children great and noble characters, we must keep in our minds and in their minds true and righteous principles for our thoughts and their thoughts to dwell upon.

"We must not permit our minds to become surfeited with the interests, things, and practices of the world about us." - Marion G. Romney, "The Book of Mormon," Ensign, May 1980, p. 66

"I like this thought: 'Your mind is a cupboard, and you stock the shelves.' Let us make certain that our cupboard shelves, and those of our family members, are stocked with the things which will provide safety to our souls and enable us to return to our Father in Heaven. Such shelves could well be stocked with gospel scholarship, faith, prayer, love, service, obedience, example, and kindness." - Thomas S. Monson, "Constant Truths for Changing Times," General Conference, April 2005

“Through the Bible we may draw upon the accumulated experiences of some of the greatest men who ever lived. A consistent student of the scripture gains a new power to think, to feel, and to enjoy. It is a source of the most exquisite and enduring delight to have one's mind stored with worth-while thoughts, beautiful expressions, and stimulating ideals.” - Sterling W. Sill, “Conference Report,” October 1959, Third Day–Morning Meeting, p. 105
