Several years ago I came across this wonderful poem, whose verses so inspired me I found fit to scribe them. I can’t remember how it came to me but I only remember being moved by it. Its too good not to share with others.
(Also found in my notebook, on an adjacent page was a reference to the above video. Strangely they belong together!)
Not “Found in Old St. Paul’s Church”!
by Max Ehrmann, 1927
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 vexatious to the spirit
