DesiderataGo 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,
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter,
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Exercise caution in your business affairs; the world is full of trickery.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Take kindly the counsel of the years,
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars;
Therefore, be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be,
With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams,
