This is the land of Zion; but we are not yet prepared to go and establish the Center Stake of Zion…. Now, it is for you and me to prepare to return back again; …to return east, and by-and-by to build up the Center Stake of Zion. We are not prepared to do this now, but we are here to learn until we are of one heart and of one mind in the things of this life.

– Brigham Young, 2/10/1867
