“Should we be protected always from hardship, pain, suffering, sacrifice, or labor?

Should the Lord protect the righteous?

Should he immediately punish the wicked?

If growth comes from fun and ease and aimless irresponsibility, then why should we ever exert ourselves to work or learn or overcome?

If success is measured by the years we live, then early death is failure and tragedy.

If earth life is the ultimate, how can we justify death, even in old age?

If we look at mortality as a complete existence, then pain, sorrow, failure, and short life could be a calamity.

But if we look upon life as an eternal thing stretching far into the pre-earth past and on into the eternal post-death future, then all happenings may be put in proper perspective”

(Spencer W. Kimball- Words to Live By, p. 96).
