President Young remarked I know to take this life as it is and as men make it it does not appear worth living in but I well tell you that when you see things as they are you will find life is worth preserving and blessings will follow our living in this life if we do right. Now if God should say I will let you live in this world without any pain or sorrow we might feel life was worth living for but this is not in the economy of God. we have to partake of sorrow affliction sorrow and death and if we pass throug through this affliction patiently and do right we shall have a greater reward in the world to come
~ Brigham Young
I think a great deal of a friend a true friend an honest man is the noblest work of God and to live in such a society is a great Blessing but we shall live to enjoy that privilege.
~ Wilford Woodruff
