“[I]t may sometimes be just as good and profitable to stay at home as to come to meeting. . . . I do not believe that those who stay at home are, in many instances, any worse than those who come to meeting, nor that those who come to meeting are particularly better than those who stay at home. . . .
“If any of you feel that there is no life in your meetings . . . then it becomes your duty to go and instill life into that meeting, and do your part to produce an increase of the Spirit and the power of God in the meetings in your locality.”
– Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, 10:349, 309 (quoted by Hugh Nibley in Educating the Saints)
