Arrowsmith's Prayer

Sinclair Lewis, Arrowsmith, chapter 26 (called "the prayer of the scientist"):
God give me unclouded eyes and freedom from haste. God give me a quiet and relentless anger against all pretence and all pretentious work and all work left slack and unfinished. God give me a restlessness whereby I may neither sleep nor accept praise till my observed results equal my calculated results or in pious glee I discover and assault my error. God give me strength not to trust to God!
