    I came across a website today and it's pretty cool. I can't believe I never saw it before today. Anyway, it has a pretty good collection of quotes from Joseph Smith. Here are some of the more interesting ones that tell us something about his beliefs and character.

    • Smith's comments about Sidney Rigdon's feebleness after the closing of a vision which they both beheld and Smith dictated into Section 76 of the Doctrine and Covenants


    I love these ones!

    • Smith's reply to a truce-flag-bearing representative of a militia mob of 3,500 men who told the camp of a couple hundred Mormons, "We are going to wipe you out."
    • Smith's reply when asked, "How do you dare think you are safe in the midst of your enemies?"
    • Smith's comments upon deciding to go to Carthage for incarceration and to face legal prosecution.
    • Cried out by Smith as he fell from a second story window of the Carthage jail while being shot by a mob both inside his room and outside of the jail.

    These two are my favorites. They describe my own personal philosophy perfectly.
