A Quote by Dr. Alexis Carrel on achievement, body, disease, effort, failure, force, melancholy, men, mind, prayer, serenity, spirit, strength, and therapy

Prayer is a force as real as terrestrial gravity. As a physician, I have seen men, after all other therapy had failed, lifted out of disease and melancholy by the serene effort of prayer. Only in prayer do we achieve that complete and harmonious assembly of body, mind and spirit which gives the frail human reed its unshakable strength.

Dr. Alexis Carrel (1873 - 1944)
