Historian: [seeing a corner house with only the front walk shoveled]: Huh. They only shoveled the front walk. I know, a corner lot, that’s a lot of shoveling, but still--I lived on a corner lot for twenty years and I always shoveled both sides. By hand, no snow blower, which is probably why I’m in such good shape for my age.
Me: That, and your pure heart.
Historian: Yes, well, I think both are necessary.
