Eldering; quotation....

I found this prayer -- titled, oddly, "Age Is Wasted On The Young" -- on page 30 of the April 2004 Harper's, where it's said to come from "the Spiritual Letters section of LibraryOnline Inc." I went to their website this morning, and the site map now shows no "Spiritual Letters" section -- but since this is a membership site ($39.95 a year), it may be that it's still there somewhere. I also went to the Harper's site, where I was told that access to the text is limited to subscribers, and I can't find it anywhere else on the Net. Here's a "fair use" snippet, therefore, that will be enough to show you how the rest of it goes...

"Dear Lord,
... Keep me from the fatal habit of thinking that I must say something on every subject and on every occasion. Release me from craving to straighten out everybody else's affairs. ....
Amen."
