"Some find it easier to bend their knees than their minds. Exciting exploration is preferred to plodding implementation; speculation seems more fun than consecration, and so is trying to soften the hard doctrines instead of submitting to them. Worse still, by not obeying, these . . . lack real knowing. Lacking real knowing, they cannot defend their faith and may become critics instead of defenders!"
-Neal A. Maxwell
"Believe in order to understand," rather than "understand [in order to] believe" (St. Anselm, trans. Sidney Norton Deane , 7).
