Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible,withought surrender be in good terms with all person,speak your truth quitely and clearly and listen to others,even the dull and ignorant,they to have their story. Avoid loud and aggresive persons,they are vexation to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others,you may become vain and 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 changing fortunes of time. Exersice caution in your business affairs for the world is full of trickery.But let this not blind you for 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 face of aridity and disenchartment it is perennial as the grass. Take kindly to the council of years ,gracefully surrendering to the things of youth.Nurture strength 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 gently with yourself. You are the child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars,you have a right to be here. And whatever your labour and aspirations in noicy and confusing life,keep peace in your soul. With all its sham,drudgery and broken dreams,it is still a beautyful world.Be cheerful strive to be happy. Max Ehrnaan 1927.
