I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. —John 11:25
Of all the victories in the chronicles of humanity, none is so great, none so universal in its effects, none so everlasting in its consequences as the victory of the crucified Lord, who came forth from the tomb that first Easter morning. —Gordon B. Hinckley
