The greatness of God (Isaiah 40)

13 Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lordor being His counsellor hath taught Him?
 14 With whom took He counseland who instructed Him, and taught Him in the path of judgmentand taught Him knowledge, and shewed to Him the way of understanding?
 15 Behold, the nations are as drop of bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, He taketh up the isles as very little thing.
 16 And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for burnt offering.
 17 All nations before Him are as nothing; and they are counted to Him less than nothing, and vanity.
Isaiah 40:13-17

We are compelled to wait (Joseph F. Smith)

As President Joseph F. Smith counseled:

God’s ways of educating our desires are, of course, always the most perfect. . . . And what is God’s way? Everywhere in nature we are taught the lessons of patience and waiting. We want things a long time before we get them, and the fact that we wanted them a long time makes them all the more precious when they come. In nature we have our seedtime and harvest; and if children were taught that the desires that they sow may be reaped by and by through patience and labor, they will learn to appreciate whenever a long-looked-for goal has been reached. Nature resists us and keeps admonishing us to wait; indeed, we are compelled to wait. [GD, pp. 297–98]

Every person wields an influence (McKay)

“Every person who lives in this world wields an influence, whether for good or for evil. It is not what he says alone; it is not alone what he does. It is what he is. ...Every person radiates what he or she really is. ...It is what we are and what we radiate that effects the people around us.” 

~President David O. McKay
