You know what is for my good.
If I recite my wants,
it is not to remind You of them,
but so that I may better understand how great is my dependence on You.
If, then, I ask You for the things that may not be for my well-being,
it is because I am ignorant;
Your choice is better than mine and I submit myself to Your unalterable decree and
Your supreme direction.
--Bahya Ibn Pakuda
