Here's a timeless quote from one of Elder Maxwell's talks. (He passed away from cancer, years ago)
"The enlarging of the soul requires not only some remodeling, but some excavating. Hypocrisy, guile, and other imbedded traits do not go gladly or easily, but if we "endure it well" (Doctrine and Covenants 121:8), we will not grow testy while being tested.
Moreover, we find that sorrow can actually enlarge the mind and heart in order to "give place," expanded space for later joy.
Thus, enduring is one of the cardinal attributes; it simply cannot be developed without the laboratory time in this second estate (mortality). Even the best lectures about the theory of enduring are not enough. All the other cardinal virtues – love, patience, humility, mercy, purity, submissiveness, justice – they all require endurance for their full development. "— Elder Neal A. Maxwell, Ensign, May 1990, p. 34
