"Commensurate with our present condition of happiness and advancement, as a result of the blessings of the Lord upon us, we may expect to find opposition in the minds of the people of the world. It has been the history of this people from the first that as they advanced in faith and power through their obedience to the principles of the Gospel our enemies have increased in their endeavors to put down the truth and stay the progress of this work. I speak of this as a matter of history, not to throw any blame upon any individual. We know, my brethren and sisters, that the powers of evil are upon the face of the land today, as they have been ever since the organization of the Church; and they have been more manifest as the people have grown in faith and power. I saw not long ago a play represented, and in it was the character of Satan. He said, 'I rule the earth; my power is everywhere.' I thought within my own heart, how true that is, in a sense; but on further reflection I was led to exclaim in my heart, 'And the power of God is everywhere also." The same thought brought to my remembrance the sentence that "God and one good man are a majority.'" - Seymour B. Young, "Conference Report," April 1903, First Day—Morning Session, p.97
