Zion; Peace and Love

"We ought to have the building up of Zion as our greatest object...The time is soon coming when no man will have any peace but in Zion and her stakes."    Joseph Smith

"No contentions.  No disputations.  Every man dealing justly with another.  All things in common.  No rich, poor, bond, or free.  Peace and prosperity in the land.  A love of God in the hearts of the people.  No envyings, strifes, tumults, whoredoms, lyings, murders, or lasciviousness.  No robbers, murders, or any 'ites'. They were one and surely there could not be a happier people."  Neal A. Maxwell
