Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from Improvement Era, Vol. 25: June, 1922

The organization in the Church best fitted to stimulate a wholesome discontent is the Mutual Improvement Association. By its title it is dedicated to the task of arousing its members to a common betterment. This organization, if it is functioning, is helping men and women to understand how much more the gospel comprehends than a knowledge of the Ten Command ments, the Articles of Faith, and the Word of Wisdom. These are, of course, fundamental as guide posts in the way of life, but the way of life, not the guide posts, is the vital thing. There is, perhaps, nothing more disconcerting to the alert young Lat ter-day Saint, eager and confident in his quest for learning, than to find his mature brethren and sisters enjoying a kind of smug complacency in the belief that all that is important in the life of the soul is a knowledge of what the Lord has revealed. Noth ing could be further from the purposes of the Creator, and noth ing could be more fatal to effort than the idea that all the fine things of the mind and heart come as gifts. The gospel clearly enjo-ins us to strive after truth. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, of good report, or praiseworthy, we seek after these things. They do not come to us as divine gifts. They are the divine rewards of our striving. This means that we must some how catch that discontent which impels men and women to rise above themselves to the more excellent things that await them. It means that we must keep our minds open, observe carefully, and read studiously; it means that we must rise slowly but surely in appreciation to the levels of the best in the thought, the literature, the music and the art of the world.

The unhappy Guinevere, reviewing in solitude the tragic errors of her life, cries out with a new understanding: What might I not have made of thy fair world, Had I but loved thy highest creature here? It was my duty to have loved the highest; It surely was my profit had I known; It would have been my pleasure had I seen. We needs must love the highest when we see it.
