Prayer against self-pity

'I pray – because it is no easy thing to do – that no matter what happens to me, I may never feel sorry for myself.'

'May I also never be full of myself.'

Dack (Luke’s gunner): “Right now I feel like I could take on the whole Empire myself!”
Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)

‘We are lambs but we are also lions and Spartans, and we will fight to the end and die roaring!’ 
[See movie ‘300’ (2006)  for King Leonidas’ death-roar]
