How do I add a widget to my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Home screen?

A widget is a simple application extension that is often part of a larger application already installed on the device.  Widgets come in all shapes and sizes, are customisable and reside on any available Home screen for quick access.  Widgets also provide quick access to information without requiring you to open the app that manages this information.  An example is the Calendar widget which provides a quick view of your upcoming calendar events without opening the Calender application.
