…we will round up our shoulders, and bear up the ponderous weight, carry the Gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth, gather Israel, redeem Zion, and continue our operations until we bind Satan, and the kingdoms of this world become the kingdom of our Lord and His Christ; and no power can hinder it…. for the Lord manages the helm of the ship of Zion; and on any other ship I do not wish to be.
– Brigham Young, 6/19/1853
