This is, indefinitely, my new favorite quote! I'm only surprised I didn't come across it sooner because I couldn't not have explained better my own philosophy of life- this is it. <3

Favorite part of Desiderata: "You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars." My favorite poem!

Haven't been able to find a 'good' version of this in so long. One of my all-time favorites!  "with all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."    Desiderata Poster by Matt Dominguez, via Behance

I wish I had found this poem sooner.  "With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world."

* Desiderata

The Desiderata by Max Ehrmann 1927 - one of the most beautiful poems ever written. Brings me back to grade. Was given a card with it on, first time I'd ever read it, still have it today.

The ideals I aim for daily, in all my routine tasks & undertakings as with any interaction with others. I do not always succeed however, in at least trying - I give it my best shot. This hung in the home of a friend I loved very much, posted in memory.

Desiderata, a beautiful poem by Max Ehrmann

Desiderata by Max Ehrmann. Current favorite poem, and words to absolutely live by.

<3 The Desiderata. '...Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,   and remember what peace there may be in silence...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 is sham, drudgery and broken dreams it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful, strive to be happy." - This is ONE of my favorite all time quotes!
