Brigham Young (1940)
Dean Jagger: Brigham Young
[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!
Brigham Young : Indians can't be any worse than some Christians I know. But just the same, until we find a little more about them, we mean to trust in you, Lord, and keep our powder dry.
Brigham Young : I'm not looking for an easy religion. I'm looking for one I can bring my family up decent in.
Brigham Young : [to his people after reaching the Great Salt Lake] This is the place.
