Joy Analysis by Hugh Nibley from Book of Mormon & Pearl of Great Price Lectures



-Mosiah 4:11-12 is the key, always remember your own nothingness and the goodness, of God, and you’ll always rejoice!
(Me Nothing + Good God = Rejoice!)

-5 times Brigham Young was driven out entirely. He said let ’em burn the temple the earth is the Lords and the fullness thereof. Let go of all and go worship. Things will care to themselves.

-Never you find a sad true Saint. Joy to each needed measure. Brigham Young saw the temple burning and said “Good. 3 cheers.” What the Lord lets go, we do too, with joy. All that matters is the work the Lord has for me to do today. This is what Brigham Young was known to say.

-Visions of minds being opened isn’t like a symphony, but much more.

-Brigham Young said ‘The secret of mine is to never worry. I never do.’ Also, Joseph Smith came to Brigham Young oft and said don’t be in a hurry.

-Greek tragedies show what life is like without the Atonement of Jesus Christ.
