Oldies but goodies

Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible and without surrender, be in good term with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly and listen to the others, even dull and ignorant, they too have their story.

Avoid loud and agressive persons, they are vexation to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter, for always there will be lesser and greater persons than yourself.

Enjoy your achievments as well as your plans.

Keep interest in your own career, however humble, it is a real possession in the changing fortune 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 cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantments it is as perennial as the grass.

Take the counsels of years, kindly, gracefully surrounding the things of youth. Future strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.

But do not distress yourself imagining.
