"Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present." --Marcus Aurelius


god grant me the shame to know myself as i am.
god grant me the strength to hide the shame.
god grant me the fear to keep me awake.
god grant me the quiet to keep me sane.
god grant me the eyes to look on the world.
god grant me the hands to change it.
god grant me the wisdom to know my own mind.
god grant me the right words to say it.
god grant me my place so that i may belong.
god grant me the feet to wander.
god grant me the knowledge that all is god.
god grant me the love to remember.

The "teenager's prayer" sounds more like it. I can't count the times at least one of these lines have escaped my lips.
