Serenity Prayer

grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
the courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.

Deus concede mi fortitudinem, ut, quae convertere queo, convertam,
et aequanimitatem, ut, quae convertere nequeo, accipiam,
et prudentiam, ut differentiam utrisque sciam.

But God, Grant me the courage
not to give up on what I think is right,
even though I think it is hopeless.

Sed etiam Deus concede mi fortitudinem,
ut, quod censeo esse justum, non concedam
etiamsi reor esse exspem.
