You need to know that…

You need to know - image of Max Ehrmann
Picture of Max Ehrmann

You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars.

You have a right to be here.

And whether 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 labours and aspirations in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your soul.

With all it’s sham and drudgery and broken dreams it is still a beautiful world. 

Be careful.  Strive to be happy.

Extract from the poem, Desiderata, by Max Ehrmann

      Thanks for your comments Melissa. Desiderata is a very beautiful poem, and, as you say, very peaceful too. Do read the whole poem off the link. Francis
