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 quietly and clearly; and listen to
others, even to the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
Ifyou compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter; for
always there will be greater and 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.
Exercisecaution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery.
But let not 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
the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurturestrength 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 labors and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace
in your soul. With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still
a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Hi

It is always nice to see these words again. In the seventies we had whole shops full of posters and this was one of the best sellers. Here is the original musical recording of Desiderata by Les Crane who was a talk show host in the seventies.
