2 Nephi 9:29
29 But to be learned is good if they hearken unto the counsels of God.

Proverbs 29:18
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.

Elder M Russell Ballard, That the Lost May Be Found, General Conference April 2012
“Equally worrisome is the ever-growing gap between the rich and poor and between those who strive to preserve family values and commitments and those who have given up on doing so. Statistically, those who have less education and consequently lower incomes are less likely to marry and to go to church and much more likely to be involved in crime and to have children outside of marriage. And these trends are also troubling in much of the rest of the world.”
“Opposite of what many had thought, prosperity and education seem to be connected to a higher likelihood of having traditional families and values.”

Elder David A. Bednar, Learning to Love Learning, Ensign February 2010
"On the landmark sign located at the entrance to Brigham Young University, the following motto is found: 'Enter to learn; go forth to serve.' This expression certainly does not imply that everything necessary for a lifetime of meaningful service can or will be obtained during a few short years of higher education. Rather, the spirit of this statement is that students come to receive foundational instruction about learning how to learn and learning to love learning. Furthermore, students’ desires and capacities to serve are not 'put on hold' during their university years of intellectual exploration and development."

“Not only does the religion of Jesus Christ make the people acquainted with the things of God, and develop within them moral excellence and purity, but it holds out every encouragement and inducement possible, for them to increase in knowledge and intelligence, in every branch of mechanism, or in the arts and sciences, for all wisdom, and all the arts and sciences in the world are from God, and are designed for the good of his people.”

John 14:26
26 But the aComforter, which is the bHoly Ghost, whom the Father will send in my cname, he shall dteach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Moroni 10:5
5 And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may aknow the btruth of all things.

Doctrine and Covenants 130:18-19
18 Whatever principle of aintelligence we attain unto in this life, it will rise with us in the bresurrection.

19 And if a person gains more aknowledge and intelligence in this life through his bdiligence and obedience than another, he will have so much the cadvantage in the world to come.
