„Existují tři způsoby, jak muži dostanou to, co chtějí; plánováním, prací a modlitbou.“

Původní znění

There are three ways that men get what they want; by planning, by working, and by praying.

Context: There are three ways that men get what they want; by planning, by working, and by praying. Any great military operation takes careful planning, or thinking. Then you must have well-trained troops to carry it out: that's working. But between the plan and the operation there is always an unknown. That unknown spells defeat or victory, success or failure. It is the reaction of the actors to the ordeal when it actually comes. Some people call that getting the breaks; I call it God. God has His part, or margin in everything, That's where prayer comes in. As quoted in [http://www.pattonhq.com/prayer.html "The True Story of The Patton Prayer" by James H. O'Neill in Review of the News (6 October 1971)]
