John Taylor

“We believe in purity, in virtue, in honesty, in integrity, in truthfulness and in not giving way to falsehood; we believe in treating all men justly, uprightly and honorably; we believe in fearing God, observing His laws and keeping His commandments. Do we all do it? No, not quite. I wish we did. . . . And as we are here for the purpose of building up Zion, He expects that we will be upright and honorable in all our dealings with one another and with all men” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: John Taylor, p. 62).
