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 quitely and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story...

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."

Max Ehrmann
