“The Prophet had the power to impress in a remarkable manner all who approached him. There was something about him which went to their hearts. They loved him, and believed in him . . . never yet have I met another person in whose company I felt the peculiar and powerful influence that I felt while in the presence of the Prophet Joseph Smith. It was due to the great portion of the Spirit of God that he possessed, merely the shake of his hand would cause a person to become filled with this influence, and any sensitive nature would know that he was shaking the hand of an extraordinary person” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Lorenzo Snow, p. 272-273).
