The Scientist's Prayer

Lord, grant that my work increase knowledge and help other men.

Failing that, Lord, grant that it will not lead to man’s destruction.

Failing that, Lord, grant that my article in Brain be published before the destruction takes place.

--The Scientist's Prayer, from Walker Percy's "Love in the Ruins"
