"No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience was wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude, and humility.... It is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire"
- Elder Orson F. Whitney
"the savior is not a silent observer. He Himself knows personally and infinitely the pain we face."
- Elder Kent F. Richards
