It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. And all that we suffer, and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, and more worthy to be called the children of God. And it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we came here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven." -Orson F. Whitney
