“Our motives are not selfish;
our purposes not petty and earth-bound;
we contemplate the human race
—past, present, and yet to come—
as immortal beings,
for whose salvation it is our mission to labor;
and to this work,
broad as eternity and deep as the love of God,
we devote ourselves, now, and forever”
(in James R. Clark, comp., Messages of the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 6 vols., Salt Lake City; Bookcraft, 1965–75, 4:155).
