Wisdom from-the-desiderata-

  1. 1. Wisdom from the DesiderataGo placidly amid the noise andhaste, and remember what peacethere may be in silence. As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons.
  2. 2. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to 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 or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
  3. 3. Enjoy your achievementsas well as your plans.
  4. 4. Keep interested in your own career, however humble, its a realpossession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
  5. 5. 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.
  6. 6. Take kindly the counsel of the years,gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
  7. 7. But do not distressyourself with darkimaginings. Manyfears are born offatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.
  8. 8. You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; youhave a right to be here.
  9. 9. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfoldingas it should.
  10. 10. Therefore be at peace with God,Whatever you conceive Him to be.
  11. 11. And whatever your laborsand aspirations, in the noisyconfusion of life, keep peace inyour soul.
  12. 12. With all its sham,drudgery andbroken dreams, it isstill a beautifulworld.
  13. 13. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
