Go Placidly

Go placidly amidst the noise and haste

And remember what peace there may be in silence

Do not distress yourself with imaginings

Many fears are born of fatigue and lonliness

You are a child of the universe

No less than the trees and stars

Be at peace with God

Whatever you conceive him to be

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.
