willingly obey the Lord's commandments (Monson)

"The knowledge which we seek, the answers for which we yearn, and the strength which we desire today to meet the challenges of a complex and changing world can be ours when we willingly obey the Lord’s commandments."
—Thomas S. Monson, "Obedience Brings Blessings"

a man is saved no faster than he gains knowledge (Joseph Smith)

“A man is saved no faster than he gains knowledge, for if he does not get knowledge, he will be brought into captivity by some evil power in the other world, as evil spirits will have more knowledge, and consequently more power than many men who are on the earth.  Hence it needs revelation to assist us, and give us knowledge of things of God.” Joseph Smith -History of the Church, 4:588
