"True knowledge never shuts the door on more knowledge." Hugh Nibley, “Zeal Without Knowledge,” CWHN 9:71

"Understanding develops by degrees." Hugh Nibley

"If you take yourself seriously, you won’t take the gospel seriously and the other way around. If you take the gospel seriously then you will say, now I know that man is nothing. . . . Oh, the nothingness of man. We can joke about ourselves once we take the gospel seriously and once we know its blessings and promises. Then we can relax and breathe easily and have some fun, which I don’t do enough of."

Hugh Nibley

“That's why I don't take this very seriously down here. We're just sort of dabbling around, playing around, being tested for our moral qualities and above all, the two things that we can be good at, and no other two things can we do. We can forgive and we can repent... We’re told that the angels envy men their ability both to forgive and repent. .. Nobody’s very clever, nobodys very brave, nobody’s very strong, nobodys very wise, we’re all pretty stupid you see. Nobody’s very anything! We're not testing in those things. But the things the angels envy us: we can forgive and we can repent. So three cheers." Hugh Nibley, FAITH OF AN OBSERVER, 24:25




For, notwithstanding the great love which the converts to these different faiths expressed at the time of their conversion, and the great zeal manifested by the respective clergy, who were active in getting up and promoting this extraordinary scene of religious feeling, in order to have everybody converted, as they were pleased to call it, let them join what sect they pleased; yet when the converts began to file off, some to one party and some to another, it was seen that the seemingly good feelings of both the priests and the converts were more pretended than real; for a scene of great confusion and bad feeling ensued—priest contending against priest, and convert against convert; so that all their good feelings one for another, if they ever had any, were entirely lost in a strife of words and a contest about opinions.

JSH 1:6


Nothing is more crippling to creative thinking than obsession with an enemy. The person who can think of only one solution to a given problem is mentally bankrupt. The person who can think of only one solution to every problem is doomed.

Hugh Nibley “The Prophetic Book of Mormon,” CWHN 8:454-55


"Isn’t it a pity….

Isn't it a pity, now isn't it a shame?

How we break each other's hearts

And cause each other pain

How we take each other's love

Without thinking anymore

Forgetting to give back

Isn't it a pity?


Some things take so long, but how do I explain

When not too many people

Can see we're all the same?

And because of all their tears

Their eyes can't hope to see

The beauty that surrounds them

Isn't it a pity?

Isn't it a pity, isn't it a shame?

How we break each other's hearts

And cause each other pain

How we take each other's love

Without thinking anymore

Forgetting to give back

Isn't it a pity?"

GEORGE HARRISON, "Isn't it a Pity"



John 15:12. (my translation) This is my instruction/command: (ENTOLAY) LOVE ONE ANOTHER--to the degree or in the manner I have loved you."
