“I desire the spirit of God to know and understand myself[.] I desire a fruitful, active mind, that I may be able to comprehend the designs of God, when revealed through his servants without doubting.”
(read with no small amount of irony in Daughters of My Kingdom: The History and Work of Relief Society)
"All that is gold does not glitter... Not all those who wander are lost."
--The Fellowship of the Ring, by J.R.R Tolkien
(and, conversely, "all that glitters is not gold"--The Merchant of Venice, by William Shakespeare)
These two concepts are my starting point.
