George Q. Cannon

Quotes by This Author

“It is worse than useless for men to cry ‘peace, peace,’ when there is no peace or to flatter themselves that the terrible issue of war can be avoided.…War in their midst is inevitable unless they take the course pointed out by the Lord which, however, they seem determined not to take. They are to be wasted away by war.…Elaborate and beautiful theories may be constructed, but they will crumble into atoms.…and leave those who adopt them in a worse predicament than they were in before.…all such schemes as these for Peace or International Congresses must be barren of all good and permanent results.” (George Q. Cannon, September 21, 1861.)
