This is, indefinitely, my new favorite quote! I'm only surprised I didn't come across it sooner because I couldn't not have explained better my own philosophy of life- this is it. <3

Favorite part of Desiderata: "You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars." My favorite poem!

I wish I had found this poem sooner.  "With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world."

* Desiderata

The Desiderata by Max Ehrmann 1927 - one of the most beautiful poems ever written. Brings me back to grade. Was given a card with it on, first time I'd ever read it, still have it today.

Haven't been able to find a 'good' version of this in so long. One of my all-time favorites!  "with all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy."    Desiderata Poster by Matt Dominguez, via Behance
