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…….

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……

Take kindly the counsel of the years,

        gracefully surrendering the things of youth.

                Nurture strength of spirit

to shield you in sudden misfortune.

        But do not distress yourself with 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 with your soul.

With all the sham, drudgery and broken dreams,

It is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Found in a Baltimore church in 1692 and later published by Max Ehrmann
