A Quote by Roy Campanella on achievement, god, happiness, health, learning, life, men, needs, poverty, power, praise, strength, and weakness

I asked God for strength, that I might achieve. I was made weak, that I might learn humbly to obey. I asked for health, that I might do great things. I was given infirmity, that I might do better things. I asked for riches, that I might be happy. I was given poverty, that I might be wise. I asked for power, that I might have the praise of men. I was given weakness, that I might feel the need of God. I asked for all things, that I might enjoy life. I was given life, that I might enjoy all things. . . . I got nothing I asked for - but everything I hoped for. Almost despite myself, my unspoken prayers were answered. I am, among men, most richly blessed!
