Wherefore, be not weary in well-doing, for ye are laying the foundation of a great work. And out of small things proceedeth that which is great. – D&C 64:33
"There is no such thing as instant greatness," said President Howard W. Hunter, then a member of the Quorum of the Twelve, during the April 1982 general conference. "This is because the achievement of true greatness is a long-term process; it may involve occasional setbacks. The end result may not always be clearly visible, but it seems that it always requires regular, consistent, small and sometimes ordinary and mundane steps over a long period of time."True greatness is never a result of a chance occurrence or a one-time effort or achievement. It requires the development of character. It requires a multitude of correct decisions for the everyday choices between good and evil. . . . We have an unlimited number of opportunities to do the many simple . . . things that will ultimately make us great."
