Primary Teacher: So your mother says prayers with you every night? What does she say?

Little boy: “Thank heavens, he’s in bed.” (Best-Loved Humor of the LDS People, p. 36)

Sterling W. Sill: In listening to this very generous introduction of Dr. Bernhard’s, I thought of a man who said to his wife, “How many really great men do you think their are in the world?”

And she said, “I don’t know, but I am sure of this: There is one less than you think there is” (Best-Loved Humor of the LDS People, p. 111).

Assigned to a conference at the Teton Stake in Idaho, J. Golden Kimball went to visit the stake president at his home. There he saw a fine new barn, abundant crops, and handsome animals, but the house was an old two-room cabin. After the stake president proudly showed him around, Elder Kimball said, “You have a nice home for your horses and cows. Next year when I come, I want to see a nice home for your wife and kids” (Golden Legacy, p. 110).
