These humble lines, with their universal message, have given comfort to many in need of guidance. The authorship of these words of wisdom, courage and inspiration is much disputed, though it is generally accredited to the American theologian Dr. Reinhold Niebuhr, perhaps in 1932. There is no shortage of other claimants, however, beginning with Cicero in ancient Rome. The wide range of claims to ownership merely reinforces the universality of the prayer. Engraved here on a beautiful silver mobius bracelet that will serve as a constant reminder.
