I saw this quote and had to laugh. The paragraph before this Brigham Young said we have Elders that could beat any in the world at gambling games.
"We are the best looking and finest set of people on the face of the earth, and they may begin any game they please, and we are on hand, and can beat them at anything they have a mind to begin. They may make sharp their two-edged swords, and I will turn out the Elders of Israel with greased feathers, and whip them to death. We are not to be beat. We expect to be a stumbling block to the whole world, and a rock of offense to them."
A Discourse by President Brigham Young, Delivered in the Tabernacle, Great Salt Lake City, November 9, 1856.

"This is an institution peculiar and different from all others. Other schools have been organized by states, countries, churches groups, and individuals. This university was organized by the Lord God." - President Spencer W. Kimball at the BYU Centennial Convocation, October 10, 1975.
