And it came to pass that one of them said unto him: What meaneth the words which are written, and which have been taught by our fathers, saying:
How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings; that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good; that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth;
Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing; for they shall see eye to eye when the Lord shall bring again Zion;
Break forth into joy; sing together ye waste places of Jerusalem; for the Lord hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem;
The Lord hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations, and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God? Mosiah 12:20-24.
Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
And a man’s foes shall be they of his own household.
He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:34-39.
Oh say, what is truth?'Tis the fairest gemThat the riches of worlds can produce,An priceless the value of truth will be whenThe proud monarch's costliest diademIs counted but dross and refuse.Yes, say, what is truth?'Tis the brightest prizeTo which mortals or Gods can aspire.Go search in the depths where it glittering lies,Or ascend in pursuit to the loftiest skies:'Tis an aim for the noblest desire.The sceptre may fall from the despot's graspWhen with winds of stern justice he copes.But the pillar of truth will endure to the last,And its firm-rooted bulwarks out stand the rude blastAnd the wreck of the fell tyrant's hopes.Then say, what is truth?'Tis the last and the first,For the limits of time it steps o'er.Tho the heavens depart and the earth's fountains burst,Truth, the sum of existence, will weather the worst,Eternal, unchanged, evermore.-"Oh Say, What Is Truth?" by John Jaques
