I shall seek the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
the courage to change the things I can;
and the wisdom to know the difference.
I will strive to distinguish the possible from the impossible;
no matter how strong the pull of wishful thinking;
and devote neither time nor energy;
to the lore of humanity's youth.
I will trust in truth as humankind's salvation;
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Using reason and empathy as my guiding star.
