  • I am not going to print Desiderata

    It is too long for me to type it all. If you want to read it put in Desiderata in Google address bar or desiderata poem and click poem to read for yourself. It is old, but worth the reminder.

      The Timeless Words of the Desiderata Poem:

      Desiderata

      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 vexations to the spirit.

      If you compare yourself to 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 the changing fortunes of time.

      Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the the world is full of trickery. But let not this 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 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 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 in your soul. With all it's sham drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world.

      Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

      -- Max Ehrmann

        Thank you for typing it for me...

        I so wanted for members to read it because it says so much to us. It covers everything. You didn't mistype one word. I could not have done that. For days it has bugged me, cuz I could not find it under the wrong spelling. Funny, the child of the universe came into my head first, then other parts, then out of nowhere, the name. I guess the universe was telling me we needed to read it, especially after the recent ban. This board is so great because the subjects go from serious to hysterical, like last night, tho I have not gone to bed yet. Day off today.Thanks again. Now we can refer to it when ever we choose.

          She might not have typed it. If you can find it on the internet, all you have to do is copy and paste.

                When you find something you want to copy all you have to do is highlight it with your mouse. Then you can hit ctrl C, or right click copy. Then go to where to you want to paste it to, and hit ctrl V, or right click paste!
