A thought from church this morning...

Stoic prayer

may I be no one's enemy, and may I be the friend of that which is eternal and abides. May I wish for every person's happiness and envy none. May I never rejoice in the ill-fortune of one who has wronged me. May I, to the extent of my power, give needful help to all who are in want. May I never fail a friend. May I respect myself. May I always keep tame that which rages within me. May I accustom myself to be gentle, and never be angry with others because of circumstances. May I know good people and follow in their footsteps.

...it's a hard thing to live up to, but I'm going to try my utter best.
