They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength (Isaiah 40)

 28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lordthe Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of His understanding.
 29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might He increaseth strength.
 30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young menshall utterly fall:
 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;they shall mount up with wings as eaglesthey shall runand not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint."
Isaiah 40:28-31

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
