Excerpt from A Controversy Between Truth and Falsehood: On the Train of Life
And in this age of prosperity, we should not lose sight of the fact that, in the truth and the powers of justice, the safety of ourselves, our homes, our neighbors, our community and na tion rests, and as a people let us profit by the mis takes of others, who in the time and seasons of plenty, forget the more important things that they left undone, which was losing sight of the main object in View, that is to perpetuate the truth and wisdom of the ruling and governing of their offsprmg or posterity in such a way as to let them become slack in the discipline of their institutions. At such times when the country is most prosperous there is the greatest danger of false impressions setting up in place of the real truth.
