upon the subj- ect of the resurrection. He said the Identical particles of matter in which we had honored our spirits with ie our tabernacles in which we had suffered, travelled, laboured, & built up the kingdom of God that would be the Identical body & no other that would be raised from the grave to immortality & Eternal life.
~ Brigham Young
so as soon as they began to eat of the fruit of the Earth they received into their system the seeds of mortality & of Death so their children wer mortal & subject to death sorrow pain & wo then when they partook of life, Joy, ease, & Happiness they would know how to prize it
~ Brigham Young
