Hey, I heard that one and I don't even know Fred. It was told by  Harold 
B. Lee in about the same words:

Harold B. Lee, Stand Ye In Holy Places, p.186
You cannot lift another soul until you are standing on higher ground 
than he is. You must be sure, if you would rescue the man, that you 
yourself are setting the example of what you would have him be. You 
cannot light a fire in another soul unless it is burning in your own 
soul. You teachers, the testimony that you bear, the spirit with which 
you teach and with which you lead, is one of the most important assets 
that you can have, as you help to strengthen those who need so much, 
wherein you have so much to give. Who of us, in whatever station we may 
have been in, have not needed strengthening?
