J. Golden Kimball: “I am very thankful this morning, notwithstanding the condition of my physical body, that I have been busily engaged cleaning up my own yard. I could not get anyone to do it for me, so I got busy and did it myself.

Golden Kimball, His Sermons, December 1891-April 1938, edited by Bonnie Taylor, 148)
