Pure Air – Brigham Young, 1860

Good pure air is the great sustainer of animal life. Other elements of life we can dispense with for a time, but this seems to be essential of well ventilated dwelling-houses, especially the rooms occupied for sleeping. You can live without water and food longer than you can without air, and water is of more importance than meat and bread. [“Covetousness, etc.,” reported by G. D. Watt, Journal of Discourses, vol. 8 (Liverpool: George Q. Cannon, 1861), p. 168.]

Brigham Young, President of the Church, 16 September 1860
