      Desiderata, An inspirational poem

      Go placidly amid the noise and the haste and remember what peace there maybe 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 to have there 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 & 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 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 to the counsel of the years,gracefully surrendering the thinks 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 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 him to be.

      And whatever your labours and aspirations,in the noisy,drudgery of life,keep peace in your soul.With all its sham,drudgery and broken dreams,it is still a wonderful world,

      Be cheerful.strive to b happy.

      Desiderata, An inspirational poem

      Oh Oner's!...This is a classic. I might be wrong here, but i think 'Desiderata' was found somewhere, a while ago, and no-one knows the author? Perhaps someone can clarify............

      Desiderata, An inspirational poem

      Mario,

      I love Desiderata. It became very popular back in the 60s during a turbulent time in my country and I used to read it often as a teenager to help me relax and get a grip.

      Thank you for bringing it back into my consciousness.

      Desiderata, An inspirational poem

      Desiderata" (Latin for "desired things", plural of desideratum) is an inspirational prose poem about attaining happiness in life. It begins: Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.[1] Max Ehrmann first copyrighted it in 1927, but it was widely circulated in the 1960s without attribution to him. This copyright was renewed in 1954 by Bertha Ehrmann
