And now my beloved brethren, I would exhort you to have patience, and that ye bear with all manner of afflictions; that ye do not revile against those who do cast you out because of your exceeding poverty, lest ye become sinners like unto them;
But that ye have patience, and bear with those afflictions, with a firm hope that ye shall one day rest from all your afflictions. - Alma 34:40-41
"Patient endurance permits us to cling to our faith in the Lord and our faith in His timing when we are being tossed about by the surf of circumstance," said Elder Neal A. Maxwell of the Quorum of the Twelve in the April 1990 general conference. "Even when a seeming undertow grasps us, somehow, in the tumbling, we are being carried forward, though battered and bruised."
He added, "Without patient and meek endurance we will learn less, see less, feel less, and hear less."
