The Daily Inspo/ Prayer for Acceptance

O! Thou God of all beings, of all worlds, and of all times,

We pray that the little differences in our clothes,

in our inadequate languages,

in our ridiculous customs,

in our imperfect laws,

in our illogical opinions,

in our ranks and conditions which

are so disproportionately important to us

and so meaningless to you,

that these small variations

that distinguish those atoms that we call men,

one from another,

may not be signals of hatred and persecution!


Voltaire, 1756
