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 persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and 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.

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your 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 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 critical 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. 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 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 careful. Strive to be happy.

Ik kreeg deze tekst van mijn nieuw collegaatje, zij vertelde dat deze tekst ooit in een heel oud kerkje onder het pleisterwerk vandaan kwam.
Het kerkje was echt heel oud en staat/ stond in Engeland of Ierland. Ik heb gegoodled maar kan niks vinden helaas..

Van het kerkje dan, de tekst is van Desiderata.

Deze tekst is gevonden in de oude kerk van Baltimore en is gedateerd en geschreven in en/of komt uit het jaar 1692. Ik heb deze tekst al jaren hier bij mij thuis hangen. Heel erg heilige en originele tekst ! Ik denk dat jij heel erg goed bezig bent Groene heks ! Keep it up !
