A Quote by David Herbert Lawrence on experience, fear, ideas, and world

The world fears a new experience more than it fears anything. Because a new experience displaces so many old experiences. . . . The world doesn't fear a new idea. It can pigeon-hole any idea. But it can't pigeon-hole a real new experience.

A Quote by Delbert L. Stapley on affliction, direction, experience, fatherhood, learning, obedience, perfection, strength, suffering, and support

We learn obedience, as the Savior did, by the things which we suffer. . . . Sometime in the eternities to come, we will see that our trials were calculated to cause us to turn to our Heavenly Father for strength and support. Any affliction or suffering we are called upon to bear may be directed to give us experience, refinement, and perfection.
