“To do one’s best in the face of the commonplace struggles of life---and possibly in the face of failure---and to continue to endure and to persevere in the ongoing difficulties of life when those struggles and tasks contribute to others’ progress and happiness and one’s own eternal salvation---this is true greatness” (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Howard W. Hunter, p. 162-163; What is True Greatness,” Ensign, May 1982).
