We are not alone in the universe (Maxwell; Moses)

“For thus saith the Lord that created the heavens; God
himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath
established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it
to be inhabited” (Isaiah 45:18; see also Ephesians 3:9;
Hebrews 1:2).

“And worlds without number have I created; and I also
created them for mine own purpose; . . .

“. . . For behold, there are many worlds that have
passed away by the word of my power. And there are
many that now stand, and innumerable are they unto
man; but all things are numbered unto me, for they are
mine and I know them” (Moses 1:33, 35).

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

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]
