Desiderata

Go placidly amid the noise and haste

and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender

be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly and listen to others,

even the dull and ignorant; they, too, have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,

they are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,

you may become vain and bitter,

for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble;

it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,

for the world is full of trickery.

But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;

many people strive for high ideals, and everywhere

life is full of heroism.

Be yourself; especially do not feign affection.

Neither be cynical about love;

for in the face of aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of years,

gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with imaginings.

Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;

you have a right to be here.

And whether or not it is clear to you,

no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive that to be,

and whatever your labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life,

keep peace with your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful

Image61.gif (5580 bytes)world.

Be cheerful.

Strive to be happy.
