Go placidly amid the noise and haste,

And remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible without surrender

be on good terms with all people.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and

Listen to all even to the dull and ignorant;

They too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive people,

They are vexations to the spirit.

If you compare yourself to others you

Will become vain and bitter;

There will always 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.

Exercise caution in your business affairs;

For the world is full of trickery.

But let not this blind you to the 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;

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.

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 the 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 its sham, drudgery and broken

Dreams, it is still a beautiful world.

Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.
