"Another way to seek a testimony seems astonishing when compared with the methods of obtaining other knowledge. We gain or strengthen a testimony by bearing it. Someone even suggested that some testimonies are better gained on the feet bearing them than on the knees praying for them."
-Dallin H. Oaks "Testimony," General Conference, April 2008
Watch a humorous logical critique of Oaks talk.
"A testimony is to be found in the bearing of it. Somewhere in your quest for spiritual knowledge, there is that 'leap of faith,' as the philosophers call it. It is the moment when you have gone to the edge of the light and step into the darkness to discover that the way is lighted ahead for just a footstep or two. "
-Richard B. Wirthlin quoting Boyd K. Packer
"Pure Testimony," General Conference, October 2000.
