Please give me…
A few friends who understand me and yet remain my friends.
A work to do which has real value, without which the world would feel the poorer…
A mind unafraid to travel, even though the trail be not blazed.
An understanding heart…
A sense of humor.
Time for quiet, silent meditation.
A feeling of the presence of God.
And the patience to wait for the coming of these things, with the wisdom to know them when they come.
(W. R. Hunt)
