DESIDERATA

 

Go placidly amid the noise and the 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 to the dull and the ignorant; they

too have their story.

 

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious

to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may

become vain or 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 carreer, however humble;

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

 

Exercise caution in your business affairs, fort he world is 

full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;

many persons 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 all aridity and disenchantment, it is

as perennial as the grass.

 

Take kindly the council oft the years, gracefully surrendering

The things of youth.

 

Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears 

Are born of fatigue and loneliness.

 

Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are

a child oft 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

Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion

of life , keep peace in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,

it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
