This reminds me of Xmas when I was small and my dad would play the desiderata song … Heavenly

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be…I like that.

great song. The cool base “Go placidly amidst the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence” and the chorus by the girls 'You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and 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"

Sorry but I have to take this with a pinch of salt…I disagree totally with the advice of “be yourself” this is probably the worst advice given to man…thank GOD cave man didn’t take it and for thanks to him we no longer live in caves or lit up fire for security. Otherwise a good share.

I have to post this picked it up on wikipedia

In 1972, National Lampoon did a parody on this prose entitled" Deteriorata", which featured the line: “You are a fluke of the universe”.

I loved staring at this piece on the wall of the house when I was a kid.

Have tried to be myself and treat everyone equal since I read this back in the year 2000…
