"I want to bear record to my brethren and sisters here that there is no other way of retaining the spirit of this work and the fellowship of the Holy Ghost than through faithfulness and diligence in observing to keep the commandments of the Lord. The individual who will be humble all the day long and strive to keep the commandments of the Lord will never apostatize or become dissatisfied, but he or she will be preserved in the truth, and by and by will sit down in the mansions of the Father, to enjoy the blessings of eternal life. People who are spiritually-minded are devoted to the work. They pay their tithes and their offerings; they go to the ward meetings and to the stake meetings, and they are willing to devote their time, their talents and their all for the building up of the kingdom of God on the earth." - Marriner W. Merrill, Conference Report, April 1902, Afternoon Session, p.40

"I think the best thing we can do is to make new resolutions in our hearts; and wherein we have failed in the past, let us try to make up for it in the future. So sure as we do, the Lord will be with us, and the manifestations of His power will be felt in every Stake and ward of Zion. It is the rule, the discipline of the Church, and we must seek to carry it out in our lives, that it may be said of us when we pass away, as it can be of a number of good people, 'Well done, good and faithful servant; you have done well in your lifetime; you have filled the measure of your creation in usefulness before the Lord, and have labored unselfishly in the interest of His work.' If we could divest ourselves of selfishness and trust implicitly in our Father, how grand would be our history." - M. W. Merrill, "Conference Report," April 1901, Afternoon Session, p.26
