A Quote by Wilford Woodruff on age, authority, day, duty, failure, god, interest, labor, life, men, mind, privilege, spirit, understanding, vision, and work

I would say to bishops, and to all men in authority, we should have an interest in carrying on this work. We should labor to get the Spirit of God. It is our right, our privilege, and our duty to call upon the Lord, that the vision of our mind may be opened, so that we may see and understand the day and age in which we are living. It is your privilege, and mine too, to know the mind and will of the Lord concerning our duties, and if we fail to seek after this, we neglect to magnify our calling.

Wilford Woodruff (1807 - 1898)
