Desiderata

by Max Ehrmann


Go placidly amid the noise and 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 the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons,
they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain and bitter;
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.


Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes 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 disenchantment
it is as perennial as the grass.


Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.


You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not 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 labors and aspirations,
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.
Be cheerful.
Strive to be happy.

"Fericiti cei saraci cu duhul, caci a lor va fi imparatia cerurilor."


O spune Iisus im prima din celebra predica a fericirilor. Am vazut ca multi inteleg sintagma "sarac cu duhul" cu "a fi prost", "naiv". E in vorba romanului: "Lasa-l, e sarac cu duhul saracu om!"


Nimic mai fals, nu asta a vrut sa spuna Iisus, eu cred ca Iisus a vrut sa spuna"Fiti mai simpli in gandire, in dorinti, in fapta". Simplitatea inalta, nu-i asa kirk?? Totul se rezuma la lupta cu propriul ego, acel ego care cere neincetat, cat mai mult, cat mai mare, care-ti sopteste la ureche " Actioneaza! Bigger is better!! Cat mai mult, mai ales cat mai mult cantitativ si in dimensiune!"


Poemul "Desiderata", poem celebru in USA,tocmai asta incearca sa-ti arate, drumul spre simplitate.

Isus a mai zis: "Nu va ingrijorati dar de ziua de maine; caci ziua de maine se va ingrijora de ea insasi. Ajunge zilei necazul ei". - Mat. 6:34

Imi place poeziasmileys/smiley1.gif...cat despre prima fericire, eu cred ca este vorba despre oamenii smeriti, nu prosti sau naivi.Asa parca am invatat si la ora de religie.

Stiu si eu niste versuri interesante.Cred ca sunt ale maicii Tereza.Prima oara le-am auzit de la fosta mea profa de engleza, Dumnezeu s-o ierte.Ea ne-a facut sa-i citim in engleza pe marii clasici ai literaturii engleze, cu ea discutam pe marginea cartilor citite sitot ea ne-a deschis oarecum orizontul in aceasta ramura a artei...Sper ca are sufletul impacat si ca se odihneste linistita, oriunde ar fi acum...smileys/smiley1.gif


Anyway


People are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered.


Love them anyway.


If you do good, people will acuse you of selfish ulterior motives.


Do good anyway.


If you are succesfull, you win false friends and true enemies.


Succeed anyway.


The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.


Do good anyway.


Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.


Be honesc and frank anyway.


People favour underdogs, but follow only top dogs.


Fight for some underdogs anyway.


What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.


Build anyway.


People really need help, but may attack you if you help them.


Help people anyway.


Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.


Give the world the best you've got anyway.

In ziua de azi, in societatea bezmetizata de excese, simplificarea e complicata si e practic ilegala.

In ziua de azi, a complica e simplu, a simplifica e complicat.

Scara valori nu mai urca, acum coboara, si-nca repede.
