Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be found in silence. Speak your truth quietly and clearly and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant, they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons – they are vexations 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.
Let your achievements will be a source of joy for you. Do your work with your heart while it would be modest, it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Be careful for the world is full of trickery but let this not blind you to what virtue. 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 all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass. Take kindly give years, gracefully surrendering the things of love. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in times of distress.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever the labors, whatever they may be your desire. In the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its sham, drudgery, it is still a beautiful world.
