“The South will secede from the North, and the North will secede from us, and God will make this people free as fast as we are able to bear it… The day is not far distant when you will see us as free as the air we breathe, and we will be ruled by those men whom God Almighty appoints. I live above the law, and I am above them.”

Heber C. Kimball – 6 April 1861, Journal of Discourses – Volume 9 (Liverpool, England: George Q. Cannon, 1862), 7.
