“No wicked man could write such a book as this; and no good man would write it, unless it were true and he were commanded of God to do so. ”
George Cannon

“No matter how serious the trial, how deep the distress, how great the affliction, God will never desert us, He never has, and He never will.”
George Q. Cannon

“The saints should always remember that God sees not as man sees; that he does not willingly afflict his children, and that if he requires them to endure present privation and trial, it is that they may escape greater tribulations which would otherwise inevitably overtake them. If He deprives them of any present blessing, it is that he may bestow upon them greater and more glorious ones by-and by.”
George Q. Cannon
