A Quote by Charles A. Lindbergh, Jr. on animals, challenge, civilization, clarity, discovery, knowledge, life, men, plants, progress, quality, and science

Is civilization progress? The challenge, I think, is clear; and, as clearly, the final answer will be given not by our amassing of knowledge, or by the discoveries of our science, or by the speed of our aircraft, but by the effect of our civilized activities as a whole have upon the quality of our planet's life-the life of plants and animals as that of men.

A Quote by Boyd K. Packer on commitment, confidence, direction, discovery, expectation, gifts, god, individuality, learning, life, privilege, questions, and yielding

Perhaps the greatest discovery of my life, without question the greatest commitment, came when finally I had the confidence in God that I would loan or yield my agency to him-without compulsion or pressure, without any duress, as a single individual alone, by myself, no counterfeiting, nothing expected other than the privilege. In a sense, speaking figuratively, to take one's agency, that precious gift which the scriptures make plain is essential to life itself, and say, "I will do as you direct," is afterward to learn that in so doing you possess it all the more.

Boyd K. Packer (1924 -)
