J. Golden Kimball: “I may not have a perfect and true conception of God, but I love him for his perfection; I love him for his mercy; I love him for his justice; and notwithstanding my many weaknesses, I am not afraid to meet him. For I know that he will deal justly with me, and the great joy I will have is that he will understand me, and that is more than some seem to be able to do.” (The Golden Legacy, A Folk History of J. Golden Kimball, by Thomas E. Cheney, p. 100)
