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 people. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others, even the dull and ignorant; they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive people, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself to others, you may become vain and bitter; for always there will be greater and lesser people than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
