Piety toward the Gods, to be sure, consists chiefly in thinking rightly concerning them--that they are, and that they govern the Universe with goodness and justice; and that thou thyself are appointed to obey them, and to submit under all circumstances that arise; acquiescing cheerfully in whatever may happen, sure it is brought to pass and accomplished by the most Perfect Understanding.

Thus thou will never find fault with the Gods, nor charge them with neglecting thee.

Thanks for the C!, nate, but I don't think Epictetus had you in mind :).
