- A precious stone; in Aaron's breastplate (Ex. 28: 18; 39:11). See also Ezekiel 27:16; 28:13; Revelations 4:3; 21:19.
- The whole secret of the study of nature lies in learning how to use one's eyes.
- Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child. If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry; And my wrath shall wax hot, and I will kill you with the sword; and your wives shall be widows and your children fatherless.
- One evening when I was visiting Grandpa Snow in his room in the Salt Lake Temple, I remained until the doorkeepers had gone and the night watchman had not yet come in, so grandpa said he would take me to the main, front entrance and let me out that way. He got his bunch of keys from his dresser. After we left his room and while we were still in the large corridor leading into the celestial room, I was walking several steps ahead of grandpa when he stopped me saying: "Wait a moment, Allie. I want to tell you something. It was right here that the Lord Jesus Christ appeared to me at the time of the death of President Woodruff. He instructed me to go right ahead and reorganize the First Presidency of the Church at once and not wait as had been done after the death of the previous presidents, and that I was to succeed President Woodruff. Then grandpa came a step nearer and held out his left hand and said, "He stood right here, about three feet above the floor. It looked as though He stood on a plate of solid gold." Grandpa told me what a glorious personage the Savior is and described his hands, feet, countenance, and beautiful white robes, all of which were of such a glory of whiteness and brightness that he could hardly gaze upon Him. Then grandpa came another step nearer me and put his right hand on my head and said, "Now, granddaughter, I want you to remember that this is the testimony of your grandfather, that he told you with his own lips that he actually saw the Savior here in the Temple, and talked with him face to face. Then we went on and grandpa let me out of the main, front door of the Temple. (as told to LeRoi C. Snow, Deseret News Church Section, April 2, 1938, p.8)
