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 vexatious to the spirit.If you compare yourself with others,you may become vain or bitter,for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.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 strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy. <3
