“Lytton wrote over thiry novels and seven plays. Even though some of his earlier novels possessed the morbid sentimentalism that was popular during that age, he exerted a tremendous mental influence on the writers of the time. His later novels would rise above his earlier works to provide worthy models to follow. Earnest, thoughtful, conscientious, and painstakingly accurate, Edward George Lytton-Bulwer was at the same time the most versatile author of his day.”
“It is held by some that Adam was not the first man upon this earth, and that the original human being was a development from lower orders of the animal creation. These, however, are the theories of men. The word of the Lord declares that Adam was the first man of all men, and we are therefore in duty bound to regard him as the primal parent of our race.”Related events:

Providential Importance in HistoryPresident Brigham Young I scarcely ever say much about revelations, or visions, but suffice to say, five years ago last July I was here, and saw in the spirit the Temple not ten feet from where we have laid the chief cornerstone. I have not inquired what kind of a Temple we should build. Why? Because it was represented before me. I have never looked upon that ground, but the vision of it was there. I see it as plainly as if it was in reality before me. Wait until it is done. I will say, however, that it will have six towers to begin with, instead of one. Now do not any of you apostatize because it will have six towers, and Joseph only built one. It is easier for us to build sixteen than it was for him to build one. The time will come when there will be one in the center of Temples we shall build and on the top, groves and fish ponds. But we shall not see them here, at present.
