Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant;they too have their story. Keep interested in your own career, however humble;it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your affairs;for the world is full of trickery. 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. Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strenght of spirit to shield you of 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 wether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therfore be at peace with God whatever you concieve him to be and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisey confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham and drudgery and brocken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.
