From a talk given at BYU on November 8, 1977
"As the veil of unbelief thickens around the globe, nothing can rend `the dark veil of unbelief' (Alma 19:6) that is not sharp, piercing, bright, and true. Dull discipleship will not light the way nor draw people to the kingdom. The philosophies of the world cannot do it, for so far as having some saving and consequential core to them, such philosophies are like peeling an onion. Perhaps that is why we cry when we feel onions."
