Wallace gave me this. Wallace is one of those terrific whirlwinds who stirs up everything around him — cajoling, energizing, shouting (but with a Southern accent, so it’s impossible not to be charmed) — and I think of this as Wallace’s prayer, though in truth someone just gave it to him and he passed it on to me.
Perhaps there’s a Wallace in your life.
Perhaps you’re a Wallace.
In any event:
So far today, God, I’ve done all right. I haven’t gossiped, haven’t lost my temper, haven’t been greedy, grumpy, nasty, selfish, or over-indulgent. I’m really glad about that. But in a few minutes, God, I’m going to get out of bed, and from then on I’m probably going to need a lot more help.

Louis XVI, upon learning at Versailles of the fall of the Bastille : 'Is it a revolt?' Duc de La Rochefoucauld-Liancourt: 'No, Sire, it is a revolution.'~.
