“We do not have the words (even the scriptures do not have words) which perfectly describe the Spirit. The scriptures generally use the word voice, which does not exactly fit. These delicate, refined spiritual communications are not seen with our eyes, nor heard with our ears. And even though it is described as a voice, it is a voice that one feels, more than one hears.” (Boyd K. Packer, Ensign, Jan. 1983, p. 52)
“Thus the Lord, by revelation, brings into our mind as though a voice were speaking. May I bear humble testimony, if I may be pardoned, to that fact? I was once in a situation where I needed help. The Lord knew I needed help and I was on an important mission. I was awakened in the hours of the morning as though someone had wakened me to straighten me out on something that I had planned to do in a contrary course, and there was clearly mapped out before me as I lay there that morning, just as surely as though someone had sat on the edge of my bed and told me what to do. Yes, the voice of the Lord comes into our minds and we are directed thereby.” (Harold B. Lee, BYU Speeches of the Year, Oct. 15, 1952)
“Sometimes the Lord puts thoughts in our minds in answer to prayers… . [He] gives us peace in our minds.” (Marion G. Romney, Taiwan Area Conference, 1975, p. 7)
