Evil

The evils under which we groan as a people and from which we suffer are not due to any lack of knowledge as to the method or the means that will correct these evils, but they are due to the fact that we ourselves fail to conform to the organization which God has prescribed, which God has revealed. George Q. Cannon, JD 24:144

Adversity

It is not on the pinnacle of success and ease where men and women grow most. It is often down in the valley of heartache and disappointment and reverses where men and women grow into strong characters. Ezra Taft Benson, ACR 8/74:70
