"Perhaps it may make some of you stumble, were I to ask you a question, does a man being a prophet in this church prove that he shall be the president of it? I answer no! A man may be a prophet, seer, and revelator, and it may have nothing to do with his being the president of the church.

(Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses 1:333)
