Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.
~Max Ehrmann, 1927
“Desiderata” is Latin for “things desired. As a teenager, this prose poem truly affected me. It speaks of the important things that I felt sure I needed to know for a lifetime. I still have my copy of the 1976 book, The Desiderata of Happiness, A collection of philosophical poems by Max Ehrmann, author of Desiderata. Even now, I feel the words of the Desiderata are worth reading, repeating, and taking to heart.
