Quotes from

Jonathan Kent: Gold. You know, next to the Lord and maybe the land, I reckon it's the most powerful thing there is.


[an army officer tells the Mormons they must leave Illinois immediately because the law can't help them]
Brigham Young: The law? What law? The law that let's a pack of scoundrels come in here and hunt us down like wild animals, burn our homes, ruin our crops, arrest our leader on trumped-up charges and then look the other way when a mob breaks in and murders him? If they call that law, let 'em keep it. We don't want any more of it!


Porter Rockwell: Zigzag. That means he wants to talk peace. You zigzag out to meet him.
