Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Good out of evil. One must thank the genius of Brigham Young for the creation of Salt Lake City--an inestimable hospitality to the Overland Emigrants, and an efficient example to all men in the vast desert, teaching how to subdue and turn it to a habitable garden."

(Emerson in His Journals, Cambridge: Harvard University Press (1984) p. 512)
