A Quote by Ezra Taft Benson on blessings, foolishness, god, goodness, imagination, nations, needs, prayer, pride, virtue, and wisdom

Many of us have a tendency to forget the Gracious Hand which has preserved our nation, enriched it, strengthened it. Many of us imagine in the foolishness of pride, that our manifold blessings are due not to God's goodness, but to our own wisdom and virtue. Too many of us have been so drunk with self-sufficiency as no longer to feel the need of prayer.
