"Of all the auxiliaries of the Church, the Sunday School is unique. . . . Its curriculum covers the entire spectrum of the gospel. . . . If the Church is to be strengthened, and it must be; if knowledge of the gospel is to be increased among the membership of the Church, and it must be; if the spirituality of our people is to be refined, and it must be�then the Sunday School must become even more effective." -Gordon B. Hinckley, "The Sunday School as a Missionary," Ensign, Aug. 1971, 29.

 "We are all teachers in some respect, and we have a duty to teach to the best of our ability. . . .Each child in each classroom, each young man or young woman, each student in seminary or institute, each adult in Gospel Doctrine classes, each missionary—yes, every one of us—has a story waiting to be told. Listening is an essential element as we teach and as we learn" (Thomas S. Monson, "Examples of Great Teachers," Ensign, June 2007, 106, 108).
