Preparation is a prerequisite to inspiration

"Preparation is a prerequisite to inspiration. Inspiration will never elicit thoughts from an empty head. Study assiduously, striving to develop a creative mind.”

Elder Matthew Cowley (1897–1953) of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, Quoted in Henry A. Smith, Matthew Cowley: Man of Faith (1954), 68–69., as quoted in "Teaching the Gospel with Power," Ensign, Sep 2005
