THE DESEDERATA - BY   MAX EHRMANN

Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what PEACE there  may be in SILENCE...

As far as possible, with out surrender, be on good terms with all persons.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly: and listen to others  even to the dull an 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 or bitter, for always there  will be greater and lesser persons than your self...

Enjoy your achievments...

Keep interested in your own career, however hunble, it's a real possession in the  changing fortunes of times....

Exercise  caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery...

But let this not blind you to what virture there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of HEROISM...

BE YOUR SELF...

Espically 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 counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth...

NURTURE  STRENGTH of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune...
But do  not distress  your self with dark imaginings...

Many fears are born of fatigue and  lonliness...

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

YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE UNIVERSE NO LESS  THAN THE TREES AND STARS,  you have a right to be here, and weather or  not it is clear to you, no  doubt the universe is unfolding as it should...

Therefore be at peace with God, WHAT EVER YOU CONCIEVE HIM?HER to be and  what ever your  labors and aspirations, in the  NOISY CONFUSION OF LIFE, KEEP PEACE IN YOUR SOUL...

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken drearyness, it is still a BEAUTIFUL WORLD...

BE   CHEERFUL, STRIVE TO BE HAPPY...
