“I feel, my brethren and sisters, to exhort you with heartfelt expression. Be of good cheer---be not disheartened; for assuredly the day rapidly comes when your tears shall be dried, your hearts comforted, and you shall eat of the products of your labours. . . .
“Be honest, be virtuous, be honourable, be meek and lowly, courageous and bold, cultivate simplicity, be like the Lord; hold to the truth though through fire or sword, torture or death” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Lorenzo Snow, p. 113).
