I rejoice in the Gospel of Jesus Christ; I rejoice in the work of God; I rejoice in the principles of eternal life, light and truth, which have been revealed to the Latter-day Saints.
~ Wilford Woodruff
I have desired from my youth up to become acquainted with the truth as contained in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. From my youth up I have had a desire to live and find the people of God on the earth. I have lived to see that day. I have lived to see Proph- ets, Apostles and inspired men. I have associated with them for many years of my life. This has been a great pleasure to me, and a great satisfac- tion to my own spirit.
~ Wilford Woodruff
I have felt to give the Latter-day Saints my faith and prayers in all their labors and exertions to build up the kingdom of God. I try to build it up to the best of my ability in accordance with the light and truth and knowledge which God has given me.
~ Wilford Woodruff

I bear record before God, angels and men, that the fulness of the everlasting Gospel has been re- vealed in these last days through the Prophets of God; and that Joseph Smith was raised up by the power of God as a Prophet, Seer and Revelator. He laid the foundation of this Church and Kingdom in its perfection, as it is at the present time. He brought forth the record as contained in the Book of Mormon, in fulfillment of the predic- tions of the Prophets of God; also the Book of Doctrine and Covenants, which contains those grand and solemn revelations, and those principles of eternal truth, so precious to the Latter-day Saints. These things are true. We should study them; lay them up in our hearts, and practice them in our lives. This is the kingdom of God and the Church of Jesus Christ. The Lord Almighty has set His hand to carry out the great programme of the last dispensation and fulness of times.
~ Wilford Woodruff
God has been watching over this people, and will continue to watch so long as we continue to do our duty. So long a[s] we humble ourselves before the Lord, so long as we keep His command- ments, so long will the hand of God be over the Latter-day Saints; Zion will arise; Zion will be clothed upon by the power of God. The Lord is watch- ing over her; the heavens have been watching over this people, and have been from the beginning. We have the blessings of God with us. They are manifest in our temporal and spiritual affairs.
~ Wilford Woodruff
You have had laid before you, dur- ing this Conference, some things per- taining to the redemption of our dead and some things in regard to the [build-] ing of temples. These, brethren and sisters, are important works. They are works which we do for others that they cannot do for themselves. This is what Jesus Christ did when He laid down His life for our redemption, be- cause we could not redeem ourselves.
~ Wilford Woodruff
We have fathers and mothers and kindred in the spirit world, and [we] have a work to perform in their [behalf]. As an individual I have had great [in-] terest in this work of redeeming the dead, and so have my brethren and sisters. This is a labor we must [con-] tinue as far as we have opportunity. This principle was taught by [the] Apostle Paul. He asks, "If the [dead] rise not at all, why are they then [bap-] tized for the dead?" This is a [work] that rests upon the Latter-day Saints.
